Sounds like what my car was doing when i left the plug off after removing intaketo do wrk on car. check your wiring at the connector, unplug and plug in again to get fresh bite into connector pins. A ford service dealer should be able to test the resistance and operation of the maf to diagnose it.

If you unplug the MAF while its idling do you notice a major difference? If there is an issue with the MAF, the car will run suprisingly smooth with the MAF disconnected... believe me, I've been down this road ! If the rough idle isn't sorted with the MAF disconnected, the first thin I'd check is the ISC solenoid on the side of the throttle body. Next would be moisture in the Dizzy, which can cause some strange running issues, then fuel filter, plug leads, plugs etc:
