We could do worse than a season full of that.
If you expect Manning to replicate the production of his prime on a talent deficient roster while installing his offense with a new team, you are going to be let down. His numbers have been steadily declining in recent years anyway, and now he's going to be dealing with tons of guys that won't really "get it" until well into season. The second year will almost certainly be better, but I fully expect one the least impressive statistical performances of Manning's career in 2012.
But I won't complain if he manages a 40 TD season. Not at all.
