Game Manager

What is Game Manager?

A quarterback that makes very few costly mistakes or turnovers.  Game managers rely on a strong defense and rushing attack to win the game.

Sporting Charts explains Game Manager (Quarterback)

If a team can win games with a game manager at the quarterback position it is a strong indication of a good all around team.  

In 2011 and 2012 (before Colin Kaepernick) the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith was often thought of as a good game manager (as opposed to an elite quarterback).  He minimized turnovers which plagued his career in previous years, and relied on a great defense and running game with Frank Gore to win.

Trent Dilfer, who won Super Bowl 35 with the Baltimore Ravens, was thought to be a strong game manager quarterback.  In the championship game he had 12 completions for 153 yards and 1 TD.
