Except for the fact that “Football Team” is the official name so it’s not an issue. There’s a big irrelevancy to “Football Giants” still being used. It may be fun to say, but there’s no point in referring to New York as such.

 

Considering San Francisco got the baseball team over 60 years ago, there's a lot of casual sports fans who don't even realize they used to play in New York. Bringing up "New York Football Giants" enlightens a new generation on a fun piece of trivia.

 

Football Team being the official name doesn't make it any less ridiculous to hear & see in comparison to the rest of the league. Take something like this as an example:

It's a Chris Berman gimmick that still exists because he still works for ESPN. Outside of him, I've never heard another broadcaster use that term, other than people making fun of him or some guy with his own YouTube channel that gets upset about everything New York sports.

On that note, what if the San Francisco BASEBALL Giants decided to move back to New York? Or MLB Cleveland became the Cleveland BASEBALL Buckeyes? Both are probably pretty unlikely but you never know. 

Terry Bradshaw says it alot

FOOTBALL Giants

 

I don’t know, math checks out to me.

 

 

If salty Washington fans want to change it up...might I suggest "Washington Soccer Workforce"?

I may be on an island on this one, but at no point during his career did I consider Eli to be an elite QB...good, at times great, but certainly not elite--and definitely not elite enough to have his jersey number retired.  But then...the man did win two Superb Owls as the QB of a New York team that, now that I think about it, really hadn't had a good-to-great long-tenured starting star QB since, what, Phil Simms?? So I guess based off that they're gonna vote him into the Oprah Winfrey Pro Football Hall of Fame too, huh?

 

(Of course, those are just my two rusted Lincolns on the matter...)

If he didn't win those two Super Bowls he's not getting his jersey retired.

He certainly was not ever elite, but he was the face of a "legacy" franchise for what - 14, 15 seasons?  And won two Owls.  As dopey and (usually) average as he is, that's a HOF career.  I don't know how much he meant to Giants fans (since I'm not one of them) or to the franchise other than the obvious, so it's not for me to say whether number retirement is appropriate, but it certainly seems that way.

Actually, I didn't realize how average his record was - it's 117-117.  Also, his Pro Football Reference HOF Monitor score has him pretty much tied with...

It's a common debate in NY if he should be in the HOF, for reasons you stated.  But Jersey retirement - there is no debate. He is Giant legend.

The Cowboys? Absolutely

The rest of the division? Not a snowball’s chance in hell

Fair enough. If the fans deem him worthy, then that's what it is...and the opinion of some ex-trucker type out in the middle of the northern plains ain't gon' matter one ioda... 😉

I was wondering why they wouldn't use part of the Super Bowl logo until I realized it was part of the current line of bland logos.
