    OTAs Begin, Don't Discount Their Importance
    By: Steve Balestrieri

    These initial practices are invaluable in showing the new guys how the Patriots conduct business. Everything from team meetings, how practices are conducted, what's expected of veterans and rookies is spelled out early in the process....

    When there is any word on Ras I Dowling, please let us know!

    This season will tell us if he is Glassy Doubting, Classy Scouting, or whatnot.

    Glass IR's hip surgery could be enhanced by the new tough glass fiber from Corning Glass.

    Reading the recent Steve Jobs bio I observed that he contracted with Corning to use their super tough "Gorilla Glass" for the iPhone display.

    After this, the term "Made of Glass" will replace Iron Man! Or maybe not.

    Nothing came of that then, whilst my friends iphone screen is breaking on a regular basis, my Galaxy SII with Gorilla Glass actually broke floor tiles when I dropped it :eek:

    As for Dowling - one of those quotes says he could have played last year without the surgery?

    That's the conundrum we face as fans. On one hand we had Ras almost crying when placed on IR saying he could be back in season and now we read of hip surgery, never a trivial thing although Hernandez had hip surgery after his 1st season and rocked the house his 2nd season. Explicit, definitive info is impossible to obtain. All we or reporters get are snippets without the full context and caveats. No wonder fans get contentious thinking some players are, shall we say "dog faking" it with injuries of seeming minor consequence.

    When does training camp start so we can stop with these angels on a head of a pin issues? :)
