Seems like it is you who needs the convincing about the legitimacy of the Skins titles, not the Giants fans. In fact, I have never in my life ever heard a Giants fan make the claim to which you are accusing.
You failed to mention the 91 Redskins. Anyway, I hear that argument in New York City all the time from NYG fans. Not all of them, but those of them who claim to really know football. Once the NFL commissioner presents the Vince Lombardi trophy to an NFL organization, that alone legitimizes the SB victory, I tell them. It's sort of like a new world leader being sworn in.
