(WSCR) While describing a Reggie Bush touchdown run during FOX NFL Sunday yesterday, analyst Terry Bradshaw had one of those moments he’d probably like back.

As Bradshaw talked over the highlight of Bush’s score, he yelled “Look at this Jimmy, like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day.”

Almost immediately, social media blew up over Bradshaw’s comments that were perceived to be racially-charged.

But were they?

A subsequent report indicates Bradshaw was in fact not taking a shot at Bush – instead, he was telling an inside joke at the expense of fellow FOX analyst Jimmy Johnson, whose love for fried chicken is an on-going joke around the FOX studios.

Host of FOX NFL Sunday Curt Menefee was quick to throw water on the fire.

Check it Menefee’s tweets and the video of Bradshaw’s comments below. What do you think? Were Bradshaw’s comments OK?
