Default Avoid a shutout with a field goal or go for a touchdown?

There have been games where we've all seen teams either try to avoid a shutout by getting some points late via a field goal, or simply going for a touchdown instead of settling for a field goal even if it means a shutout. Usually at this point the game is over either way. What is your stance on this? I've always thought it was lame if you try to avoid a shutout and that's your take-home trophy in a loss. Getting a shutout sucks, but I think the alternative is a little more pathetic.

Some games, you just have to take something out of it as a positive. If it's that you didn't get shut out, that's fine.

A few years ago, I got super pissed at Childress for not going for a FG late in the 4th when they got blown out by the Packers. Mainly because the Vikings hadn't been shut out in 16 years, (at the time) the longest active streak in the NFL, and the 3rd longest streak in NFL history.
