Every quarterback available tends to fall into one of two categories. One group is full of guys who do not make a ton of huge plays but protect the ball. The other is full of high-risk, high-reward style players. These guys make huge plays but couple them with huge mistakes. Anybody better than this is usually not available.
Jason Campbell fits the first category. His 2.4% interception rate is the tenth lowest in NFL history. Combine that with a 60.9% career completion percentage, 6.7 yards per attempt, and a 3.5% touchdown rate, and you have a quarterback who might not carry the load but one who does not kill his team with turnovers.
When you hear the phrase game manager, Campbell is a great example. He is good enough that if you surround him with talent, he can produce at a mid tier level. He will never be an elite quarterback. He is not accurate enough. He freezes too much in the face of pressure. He will not lose you a game, though, and can do enough to win under the right circumstances. An added bonus is he is used to picking up new playbooks. He has had ten offensive coordinators since college.
