Joe Smith vs. Akili Smith
Mike Jones had two fairly efficient quarterbacks on the field with Akili Smith and Kevin Eakin while Pete Kuharchek had to rely mainly on Joe Smith.

Swedish National Joakim Holm had contributed a fine TD and 2 receptions for 18 yards.
Tight end Jason Rader had come from the Atlanta Falcons and his contributions to the game were 5 receptions for 33 yards.
For the Rhein Fire fans it had been a tough season with only 1 win until week 8 and only 28.000 had come out to the big Derby compared to 50.000 some years ago until the team had to migrate to Schalke during the construction of the new arena.
Head coach Pete Kuharchek was playing the worst season ever and the team had to make a sad decision when saying good bye after all these years to a wonderful person and a hard working coach. But 5 seasons without a trophy had shown, that a superb defensive coordinator isn`t automatically a successful head coach.
Galaxy head coach Mike Jones had been working closely with Pete Kuharchek for several years before he took over the Frankfurt team in 2004 for leading the team into 3 World Bowls within 4 years.
