Filter Backlog by Status

So, a while ago, we moved to JIRA for our task management and since, our product management was interested in having a way to quickly filter the backlog to only show specific status of our workflow.

We know how to make filters using JQL for specific status but creating a filter for each of those would create a lot of quick filters. Is there a way to make a JQL filter (or even a manual filter) to filter the Backlog with a parameter? (Something in the style of an option box)

Note: The reason why he wants to do it in the Backlog is so he can move things around our sprints quickly.

No, quick filters are the only way to do filtering.

I see. Would there be a way to allow our PM to quickly move things into the sprints (We generally have one sprint active and one sprint being prepared) without having to open each cards and click Edit?

The context menu helps me, although I'm not sure it is for everyone's taste.  A right click on an issue (or set of selected issues) in the backlog gives us options like "move to top of backlog" and "move into first sprint"
