Terry Bradshaw Channels Don Imus, Suggests Reggie Bush Ran "Like He Was Chasing A Bucket Of Chicken"

 

Fox should suspend Terry Bradshaw for likening a Reggie Bush touchdown run to him “chasing a bucket of chicken.”

1983. As Washington Redskins wideout Alvin Garrett barreled through the Dallas Cowboys defense during “Monday Night Football,” Howard Cosell remarked to viewers, “That little monkey gets loose, doesn’t he?”

2012. During the “Visa Halftime Report” on Fox, as a highlight of Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush barreling through the Indianpolis Colts defense plays, Terry Bradshaw said: “Look at this, Jimmy [Johnson], like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day.”

At that moment, Curt Menefee, an African-American, openly wondered: “What are we gonna do with him?”

How about a suspension? What “TB” said during that pre-recorded clip of an African-American NFL player in action was no different than what Cosell said over an African-American NFL player live.

And it’s just as bad as what Don Imus said about the Rutgers women’s basketball team five years ago – a statement that cost him his nationally syndicated and televised radio show.

Cosell couldn’t live down the guilt of those Garrett remarks, which is what led to him leaving the “MNF” booth after that season.

I’m not saying Terry Bradshaw is finished as a “Fox NFL Sunday” commentator.

But he just needs to learn a lesson from this, that’s all.
