Rule #1: NEVER PUNT.
And why is that? Because you only have a few possessions and punting doesn't put the other team at nearly enough of a disadvantage (or your team at an advantage in subsequent possessions) to offset your guarenteed lost possession. Same logic applies
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
