With that bit of accounting out of the way, we feel it important to bring you a list of the most arduous strategic challenges Bill Belichick has faced in his coaching career, in order:
**a)** Stopping the "Greatest Show on Turf" [Rams](/teams/st.louisrams/profile?team=STL) in [Super Bowl XXXVI](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/history/recap/sbxxxvi).
**b)** Guiding the Pats to an 11-5 record with [Matt Cassel](/player/mattcassel/2506562/profile) at quarterback in 2008.
**c)** Figuring out some way to stop that wicked-scary [Colts](/teams/indianapoliscolts/profile?team=IND) [fake-punt formation](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000560859/article/colts-fake-punt-gaffe-could-have-chuck-pagano-on-the-hot-seat) Sunday night. </content:power-ranking>
