how to read a paper. the second step

Can some one explain more "The second pass" of how to read a paperby Keshav. He said on the second step of reading a paper you should read the whole except proofs. Am I should neglect some thing else? I still have problems in reading the paper and the subject is not so new to me I am familiar with the problem which the writer wants to solve.(Maybe help: I am reading a paper on the computer network field )
