Jay Cutler’s first broadcast as a Fox analyst will be for Aug. 27’s preseason Bears-Titans game, and Dowell Loggains is ready for what his former quarterback’s TV debut will entail.
“I’m perfectly ready for Jay to criticize our offense,” Loggains said. “I’ll hear it before you guys do through text message.”
Few know the Bears’ offensive scheme better than Cutler, who worked with Loggains in 2015 (when he was the Bears’ quarterback coach) and 2016 (offensive coordinator). It won’t be until Week 6 that a Bears quarterback will have more regular season game experience running Loggains’ system than Cutler.
Loggains said Cutler is "very comfortable" moving from the field to broadcast booth, and is confident Cutler will do well in his new role.
“I think he’s gonna be wonderful,” Loggains said. “Jay’s an extremely talented person. He’s a smart person. Jay will be successful in whatever he chooses to do and I think he’s going to do a wonderful job.

And somehow the most "Cutler-esque" moments made us laugh, cry and feel all the feelings of the rainbow, the most.
America got a taste of live sports on Sunday via The Match, a charity golf outing pitting Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. The competition raised $10 million for coronavirus relief.
It also offered Manning the chance to take a friendly jab at Brady, long his competitor on the gridiron, using new Bears quarterback Nick Foles.
In a mid-match interview, Manning noted how it's difficult to get to Brady's head on the field. The former Colts and Broncos quarterback then named two potential caddies he could have brought to disrupt Brady's focus: his brother, Eli Manning, and Foles.
"Do you bring Eli? Could do that," Manning said. "Do you bring Nick Foles? Maybe."
"Cheap shot," Brady said in response, grinning.
The Philadelphia Eagles beat Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII two years ago, with Foles, a backup turned starter, leading the charge. Based on Brady's comment, Manning may have struck a nerve with the six-time Super Bowl champion.
Foles got in on the fun on Twitter:
