You can't really use record to evaluate a quarterback. It is the most important position in sports, but there's still a ton of stuff that can determine the outcome of a game that the QB has no control over.

You're trying to refute my stat with the same stat in a much smaller sample size. That's not going to persuade me, nor should it.

The only people who regard passer rating as a useless stat are those who have had their anecdotal/opinionated arguments rendered useless by it. It is simply a number that takes into account yards per attempt, completion percentage, and TD/INT ratio, all of which are very important. It gives you a holistic view of a QB's play, instead of cherry picking a certain stat.
And if you want to go by said stat, Alex Smith is a top 3 QB.
