If all players are super motivated then why do some guys get the reputation of being extra hard workers, putting in countless hours watching film while other players get the rep of being lazy? Hell, Spencer Tillman was so highly motivated to play football that he gave up millions in order to go serve his country.

We've all heard the old Peyton Manning/Ryan Leaf story entering the 1998 Draft about being asked what they'd do if chosen number 1 overall. Your post is easily proven false. You have no idea what motivates these guys.
I never said I knew exactly what motivates these guys. I can only speak for athletes that I have known myself. I was pointing out that nobody knows, but to be successful is does take drive. Thomas has always had the reputation of being one of those extremely hard workers and driven to be the best.

Oh, and Spencer Tillman was a RB back in the 80's who became a broadcaster for CBS college football and teaming up with Shreveport's own Tim Brando calling games. I believe you meant Pat Tillman.

Use him as a tackle-eligible player until he's healthier and up to speed?

Penning is so aggressive he will undoubtedly receive a lot of penalty Flags. I think we should play him this year so that he has time to develop before the start of next season.

Re: Saints Rookie Trevor Penning Could Return Sooner Than Expected

I am not sold on this guy at all. I know he is just coming back from injury so a bad first game for a rookie isn't all that much of a concern. What does concern me is he is a 1st round draft pick that got it handed to him in preseason by edge rushers who were hoping to make practice squad rosters. I seriously hope I am wrong, but this guy looks like a 1st round LT bust who will need to be moved to guard. We shall see...

The guy hasn't played a single meaningful game at his drafted position and you're labeling him a possible bust? I'm not sure what you are basing your evaluation on, but Penning only played SIX offensive snaps and one special team snap versus the 49er's. On offense he was brought in as an eligible receiver. He hasn't even played a single snap at left tackle yet.

After the first couple of practices I don't remember Penning having any further issues. He only had one penalty called on him during the preseason games (vs Texans) and it was declined.
