Colts' Lineman World Bowl Champion

Yesterday the Frankfurt Galaxy defeated the Amsterdam Admirals by a score of 22-7 in NFL Europe's World Bowl. Although two Colts saw action in the contest, only one emerged as a World Bowl champion when the game ended.

Neither defensive lineman Justin Brown nor linebacker Nick Hannah was amongst those tabbed for the starting lineup on their respective teams' defensive units, but both saw action in the 2006 World Bowl championship game on Saturday.

Brown, who played for the Frankfurt Galaxy, came out of the contest with the victory and one tackle to his credit. Hannah registered one special teams tackle during the game.

Former Colts draft pick David Kimball saw plenty of action as the kicker for the Galaxy, hitting two out of three field goal attempts and both extra point conversions.

Former Colts receiver Skyler Fulton made four catches for 41 yards for the Admirals.

NFL Europe Managing Director Jim Connelly announced that he hopes to make a few changes to the league for the 2007 season that he believes will help the league establish a wider fan base.

Most prominent amongst those changes would be to allow teams to retain their current lineup of any returning players rather than the current method of allocating the top 100 and then holding an open draft each year. That would allow players who don't land in the NFL the opportunity to work in the community, making public appearances and working with area youth groups. He also hopes to increase branding efforts between the NFL and NFLE and establish direct links between NFL teams and individual NFLE teams.

One potentially controversial recommendation is his desire to push the start of the league's season back two weeks with an April 7th kickoff. But that would mean the season wouldn't end until mid-June, further limiting the NFLE players' pre-training camp time with their actual NFL clubs.
