IN 2009 we are playing in our leagues superbowl.

We don't punt.

We had 4th and long from our own two.

Still Didn't punt. Went for it...didn't make it.

Other teams ball 1st and goal from the 3. They score.

We end up winning 20-15 on a goal line stand.

And to this day I STILL wouldn't punt. LOL!

Call me crazy, but instead of going for it if this was in the 4th quarter I would have taken a safety and then free kicked to them.  I'd rather give up 2 points and have a better chance of stopping them on a longer field than giving them the ball inside our 5 yard line with a chance to get a touchdown.

It sounds like in your scenario you had the lead. I would have taken a saftey and then free kicked. That works in certian situations.
