Terry Bradshaw made the biggest fumble in the NFL on Sunday when he compared Reggie Bush TD run to "chasing a bucket of chicken" -- but the jaw-dropping comment was intended to be an inside joke ... TMZ has learned.

Hall of Famer Bradshaw was describing Reggie's play during yesterday's halftime highlights show on FOX NFL Sunday -- when he spewed, "Look at this Jimmy, like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day."

Sources who were inside the FOX studio yesterday ... tell TMZ Terry was not trying to insult African-American Reggie -- but instead was taking a shot at fellow FOX analyst Jimmy Johnson.

We're told the entire cast and crew has always busted on JJ -- on and off air -- for his love of fried chicken ... and that's why TB called out Jimmy during his comment.

So, we gotta ask ...

Really, that's racist? For decades the blacks have been telling the world that fried chicken is " soul food" ,which I take to mean black folks food, and a product of the plantation life their ancestors had to endure. The companies that sell fried chicken pander to the minorities. I grew up eating soul food. Just don't brag of your fried chicken heritage then call racist if we mention it.. It is your claim , not mine.

I don't know it Terry is a racist or not, but the joke wasn't racist at all. He was def making fun of JJ.
