I think what works in Parker's favor in this regard is the fact that he wasn't a freakishly talented blue-chip phenom coming out of college who spent his junior high, high school and college years being coddled and having his ass kissed. He actually had to WORK to get to where he is now, and thus appreciates things alot more and probably considers every moment of his NFL career up to now a blessing, as opposed to someone like Reggie Bush, who probably knew he was NFL-bound as early as 8th or 9th grade.
