Wow, dude. Either you're talking about an article different from the one in the OP or your reading comprehension is terribly damaged.
I went back and re-read the link in the OP, just in case I had been too hasty in my last post, and the words 'best' and 'practice' are nowhere to be found. The most he says about practices is a reference to a DB.com article which I also re-read and again makes no comparisons whatsoever between Thomas' performance in OTAs and those of the other TEs.
I did find this tidbit straight from the article, though:
....based on what he can offer the team athletically, I believe he should be the starting tight end....
You do realize that you can root for a guy to succeed without completely diving into his corner and defending him from any and all criticism to the point of making blatantly incorrect claims on a message board, right? You don't have to turn everything into an argument just in case you're 'proven right' at a later point in time.
You can now begin typing, 'Actually, _____' in retort.
