as good, well, etc. as the next person
as (something) as the next man/woman/person
As much of the adjective stated between "as" and "as" as anyone else or the average person. Of course I can solve this math problem—I'm just as smart as the next man. Look, I'm as adventurous as the next person, but there's no way I would ever cross that rickety rope bridge.
