Definitely a mixed bag, I think he is like Hood he gets promoted past his competency. Great job as a brigade and division commander, especially at Antietam and Fredericksburg. Then he gets the higher call and is never comfortable in his own skin. His command by voting twice at Gettysburg was IMO pathetic and then he doesn't exploit his victory at all. Yes his army was battered but Lee's was as much or more so and trapped by the Potomac. Finally he gets cross ways with Grant and put on the shelf.
