Assuming (a) you're departing from one of the new UA gates; (b) precheck goes smoothly; (c) you don't want to sprint; (d) you don't need to use the washroom/get coffee/do anything before the flight and (e) you know the layout.

6:15am flight
6:00am must be at gate
5:55am clear TSA
5:45am arrive TSA
5:40am out of cab

Personally I think this is a bit tight. If you get dropped off by the cab too soon, you'll have to backtrack on foot toward the UA counters where the TSA checkpoint is. A snafu at TSA, and you'll have to run. Zealous GAs, and you could be offloaded.

For me, 5:30am is as close as I'm willing to cut it, but don't live on the edge like I used to.
