Let's pretend the Redskins finish the 2007 season with an 8-8 or 9-7 record.... and in doing so, the Redskins miss the playoffs. Obviously, we have a 3-4 game improvement from the year before which was Joe Gibbs' worst record as a Head Coach.
I ask because even the most reserved predictions are 8-8 or 9-7. And I'm wondering if this is acceptable for year 4 of a program.
I'd also like to post a followup to see if 6-10, 10-6, 5-11 and 8-8 records in 4 seasons would get most coaches fired in the NFL.
