Best Answer

They are not called "the new york football jets" by anyone else but Chris Berman. The Giants were called "the new york football giants" to distinguish them from the former new york Baseball team (now in SF)... Its a joke that Chris Berman uses, as obviously there is no "new york baseball jets" or any other sport for that matter.
