Terry Bradshaw's "Bucket Of Chicken" Comment Was About Jimmy Johnson, Who Apparently Loves Chicken

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

On Sunday, Terry Bradshaw made a comment about Reggie Bush "chasing a bucket of chicken" while doing the highlights on Fox's NFL halftime show. Today, he went on WFAN to explain that his comment wasn't racially motivated, but rather a reference to an inside joke about fellow analyst Jimmy Johnson's penchant for eating chicken.


You can listen to the five-minute interview below, a worthy endeavor if only because it includes a painstaking description of Jimmy Johnson's chicken-eating habits, and Terry Bradshaw saying the words, "I'm gettin' some twitters about your chicken deal."
