Mike Martz In Your Ears: Former Bears Offensive Coordinator Now On-Air Talent

Stand back ladies and gentle giants; Mike Martz -- he of the Greatest Show on Turf and of the Other Show on Whatever Soldier Field Calls Its Grass -- will now be an NFL game analyst for FOX. This marks his second foray into the shining world of television, but his first time adding commentary of color live, during a game. Like an actual game. Live.

Questions remain about the impending new role with FOX. For instance, will QB Jay Cutler still have a chance to tell Martz to go [expletive] himself? Will former quarterbacks working with Martz get sacked while in the booth? Will Martz roundly criticize the use of tight ends?

We can only assume "Yes" to all of those questions, but we will not know for certain until Martz makes his glittering debut September 9 when the Carolina Panthers (and Greg Olsen) take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
