No mistaking the results of our poll

Thanks to everyone for bearing with us as we debuted our newest blog innovation. Our inaugural NFC North SportsNation poll revealed a clear winner.

As you can see, 60 percent of the more than 25,000 responders (as of this posting) believe the Detroit Lions had the division's best draft. (Imagine if they had traded up and got LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson.)

I was a little surprised that only 9 percent of you voted for the Chicago Bears, who filled important needs with their first two picks, but this isn't exactly a scientific poll.

If you have any ideas for future polls, feel free to let me know.

Carry on.
