Only stupid people would axe such a question.

We bring in good players, and all they do is axe for them to be traded.

You're an idiot

You whine a lot.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Didn't we trade up for Doug?

So he cost us a 1st and more.
Erm.  No.  Does not compute.  You can say that he cost the team a first OR a 2nd and 4th.  Regardless of how one feels about the idea of trading him now, claiming he cost the team "a 1st and more" is just bad logic.

So our first round pick did not cost us a first?

So we did not exchange our ability to pick n the first round for a player?

I mean really,

We used a first round pick along with a later round that was used to trade up in exchange for Doug Martin.

What's not to get?
There simply aren't enough facepalm pictures in the world to cover that.
His post was perfectly clear and 100% correct.
How many picks were actually used to make the selection of Martin? ONE, a 1st rounder.
How many picks were used to obtain that 1st rounder? TWO, a 2nd & a 4th.
It's one or the other, it was never a first  and more, without using that 2nd & 4th in a trade up there wouldn't have been a 1st to use, they are essentially the same thing.
