I think it's a bit unfair to say that it wasn't a great game. Warner and Rodgers were picking apart the defense through skill and excellent reads. Some of the passes, Warner was threading right between 3 guys in zone coverage, each one about half a second too late to close in. One of the best passing displays I've ever seen, and I wouldn't blame the defenses. Now, if it was Mark Sanchez doing this, who is a TERRIBLE quarterback, yes, it would be quite bad defense. When you have two of the top 5 QBs in the league (both are completely underrated, and I'm a Vikings fan complementing Rodgers) and a high-scoring contest, I wouldn't rush to say it's bad defense, but rather, good offense.

Secondly, when you say a game is entertaining and exciting, isn't that pretty much the definition of great? Sure, it wasn't great defense, but that is not required for a game to be great. If so, then the final drive of your Giants' Super Bowl over the Pats wasn't a great one because of some blown plays on defense on that final drive, and the Tyree catch play was a terrible play because the defense didn't sack Manning! No, yesterday was a great game: the sport IS entertainment.
