I think he's done, at least in Baltimore. He's had a 10 year career, last 3 with the Ravens and took home a Super Bowl ring. He's 32, Juice is cheaper and younger, so I feel he won't be wearing purple and black next season... Bc

I don't pay it much mind either, but you're putting too much stock in the perfection thing. It's just an anomaly with the system. When you take a subjective topic like evaluating QB play, and try to spit out a simplified, objective number for it, there's going to be some discrepancies.
Probably 90% of the time, you and passer rating would agree on which QB played the better game. Statistically, Alex Smith had a great game (4TDs to no picks, high YPA, high completion%) so he got a
