Most fans can't enjoy remembering a season as dismal as 2005 with hardly any real victory and with the resignation of head coach Pete Kuharchek, what leaves only some outstanding performances by RB Joe Smith and CB Blue Adams as some sort of positive memories.
Overall it had been a dismal season for Pete Kuharchek, who had even been only a few inches away from a win against the Galaxy.
But some very poor quarterback performances had not given the team much of a chance during the entire season, in which most of the weight was carried by RB Joe Smith.
Keyon Nash came to Europe with great plans.
In 2005 running back Joe Smith had been the most impressive player.
Quarterback Scott McBrien was tested by the Green Bay Packers at Rhein Fire where he had introduced himself with 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, what was the end of his NFL ambitions.
