Delay of game penalty?

Hey, I have a long running question and I wanted to bring it to the peanut gallery for clarification:

Why do I see a lot of teams burn a timeout to avoid a delay of game penalty, especially early in a scoreless game or in situations where there is no clear advantage to do so? A delay of game penalty is only 5 yards with no loss of down; a minor penalty by any standards. A burned timeout can dirty-dick a team in the last two minutes of a one possession game...

I see this quite a bit. Why do QB's avoid a delay of game like the plague? I'm all up on strategy but I don't get why this happens. Do you know something I don't?
