If he meant bad, then he should say it like he means it. Going a roundabout way of doing it just wastes time and frustrates everybody (which I guess is the goal, really).
It does imply it, but I don't think it's ever good to assume things. Taking it at face value, "worse" is relative to what's being compared, and not an absolute indication of quality.
