Chiefs vs. Colts: Bill Polian Says Weis, Crennel Know How To Beat Indy

A few years ago, the best game in all of sports was the annual Indianapolis Colts vs. New England Patriots game. It seemed that they were always classics. Rewinding a few more years to the first five years of the decade, and it was about the Patriots consistently beating the Colts.

The Pats did that with the help of a couple of coordinators Chiefs fans should be familiar with. Colts executive Bill Polian said on his radio show Monday Night (transcribed loosely via Stampede Blue) that Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel know how to beat the Colts.

Both Weis and Crennel from the Pats organization during their hey-day, when they consistently beat us.  They know how to play us, much like Jacksonville and Houston.  Romeo did a good job when he was head coach in Cleveland against us.  He has many more weapons than in Cleveland.

Polian says Weis will have three running backs at his disposal and he mentioned Javier Arenas as a guy who's excelling in the return game. He calls the Chiefs "for real" and says it'll be a tough game.

The Crennel factor is the biggest thing the Chiefs have going for them at this point. Not many people have a blue print to beat the Colts but, for a few years at least, the Patriots did.
