4-4 is a minimum. Would presumably be still in the hunt for the NFCS and a playoff berth. Barely.
But it would be our best start since...
Agree with you big time here. It would be our best start in 5 years.
That being said, I don't know that I want a mid-season coaching change anyway because it will likely not help anything.
Final record for me to not want coaching change is 9-7 with Rivera showing significant improvement in the following : in game strategy adjustments, time management (especially late game situation), general aggressiveness.
