Guess what game Jay Cutler will be broadcasting to start his career in the media

By Kevin Patra and NFL.com

Chicago Bears fans won't have to wait for the regular season to hear Jay Cutler analyze games.

Kevin Burkhardt, who will be calling games alongside Cutler and Charles Davis in FOX's No. 2 NFL broadcasting crew, told Adam Schein on Mad Dog Sports Radio on Friday the group's first game will be the Bears vs. Titans tilt in Tennessee on Sunday, Aug. 27, during the second week of the preseason. Cutler announced Friday he has agreed to a broadcasting deal with FOX.

While some scoff at Cutler joining the TV world given his gruff approach to the media during his professional career, the quarterback could surprise. Cutler is intelligent, well-spoken when he wants to be, and his unvarnished attitude could translate well to television.In his first game, Cutler gets to analyze a team he knows inside and out, having played in Chicago the past eight seasons. The pairing should make for an interesting sideshow. Will Cutler rip his former teammates and coaches? Will he come out of the gate with kid gloves?

The big issue for Cutler in the booth could be whether he'll pussyfoot around criticizing players and coaches as he eyes a possible return the the sidelines if an NFL team calls him following an injury. We've seen many ex-players and coaches soft-pedal the criticism immediately after joining the media world.

Cutler will get his first opportunity to prove he's all-in on providing poignant analysis right off the bat by breaking down his former team.
