Junkin forever linked to Giants-49ers
It’s nine years later and Trey Junkin still can’t escape the nightmare.
Later today, the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers will hook up in a battle for the NFC championship and a berth in Super Bowl XLVI.
Those were the same two teams who collided in 2003 for an NFC title.
There’s no need to nudge Junkin and say, ‘Hey, man, you played in that game didn’t you?’ ”
Yes, he did and as fate would have it, the former Louisiana Tech University star is arguably the one player whose name is quickly associated with the outcome.
