  • I'm not a Sports Guy

    But i thought this was OK. Josh being on the football team= a hilariously fun episode. It's fun because it's something we never thought Josh would do (he... doesn't look like a sports guy). And at the end when he won the game, that was a good ending. Overall, a B+ or so, it would be higher but as I said before, I just do not like sports a whole lot at all. But, that does not stop this episode from being highly enjoyable and really funny, at least it certainly does not do this for me in the slightestmoreless
  • Josh tries to be cool.

    A plot that developed amazingly, This was a lot of plot development, the first thing Josh tries to be cool, then he ends up scoring the winning touchdown for his school! I like how Megan fits in to the episode, her getting the football players sick, come to think of it she actually helped Josh to be cool getting the football players sick so he can fill in, the janitor, Zeke is a memorable guest star, he was hilarious! I like the intro when Josh was talking about cheese & Drake was talking about music. A silly episode that all fit together like a jigsaw puzzle!moreless
  • Good episode!

    In this episode Drake wants Josh to be more cool and tells him to join the football team. Josh goes to tryouts and makes it on the team, but as the Equipment manager. Josh loves his position better than on the field with the other players getting hurt. When Josh is making brownies for the team Megan puts flour in the brownies and one of the players gets sick and can't play. The coach forces Josh to play for him so the team doesn't have to forfeit. To avoid Josh from playing against the toughest football team Drake gets the janitor who was a football star but now can't remember anything. But the plan backfires and Josh ends up playing, not to make him cool but for the team, making the winning touchdown. Good episode watch it =)

  • Josh becomes the football's team aquipment manager. But, when Josh's brownies causes a football player to get sick, Drake volunteers Josh to play. Josh doesn't want too, & Drake finds Josh a replacement. The replacement gets hurt & Josh takes his place.moreless

    This was an OK episode. It was pretty funny, but I thought it was a little dull. Josh tries to be cool in front of people all the time, and still messes it up for him and his brother. This episode was mainly centered on Josh and his "un-coolness" problem, which I thought was good. It wasn't a bad episode, it was just kind of boring. This episode of Drake and Josh, entitled "Football" earns a 7.9 out of 10 from me because it was just kind of dull and boring, but, as always, it was still a very funny episode!moreless
  • Kind of Funny

    Drake thinks Josh isn't cool so Drake makes him try out for the football team to try to make him more popular. However Josh gets murdered and get put as equipment manager instead. Drake tries to talk him out of it saying he was better off with his magic tricks however Josh dosen't want to quit. However when due to Megan Josh's brownies make everyone sick Josh has to play for a player. Thay try getting the janitor to play but he gets injured so Josh ends up playing anyway. Josh ends up scoring the winning goal though.

    Excellent Episode! The janitor was probably my favorite part.moreless
