Winning games is his only barometer for measuring a quarterback.
"It's your job to execute your offense and help your team win games," Smith said. I really think that's the ultimate evaluation of a quarterback." By that standard, Smith indeed ranks among the league's best.

He's on pace for more than 4,200 passing yards and 32 touchdown passes.
His career bests are 3,502 passing yards last season and 20 touchdown passes in 2015.
