I don’t think anybody thinks that 0-4 [is acceptable] and certainly Mike Holmgren and Pat Shurmur don’t think it is and we don’t think it is, but this is a young team, it’s building, and I think we’re heading in the right direction. We don’t officially own the team yet, and we’ve said all along that we’re not going to make any comments on personnel changes until after we own the team. [The league vote is] in about two weeks, and candidly we’ll be halfway through the football season so any personnel decisions we make would be made toward the end of the year.
