Let me know when it's downgraded to Scottie Pippin, then I'll start worrying.

Avellini, wow, that's going back.

If this continues, they'll be downgraded to Craig Krenzel, then Rick Mirer, and finally the dreaded Jonathan Quinn rating.

Maybe the city can sell off some streets to go with those parking meters?

Now it's going to drop even further, now that the Willis Tower is no longer the tallest building in America.

You forgot the Rusty Lisch rating. Below that they have to start using Cubs terminology.

Skipped right over Rex Grossman?

O, ye who know so little history of Bears quarterbacking fail. Rexy looks like Sid Luckman compared to (spins wheel) Mike Phipps...(spins wheel) Bobby Douglass...(spins wheel) Moses Moreno...

Rusty Lisch was so godawful at quarterback that Ditka finally said "fark this" and used Walter Payton at QB.
