I think one of the reasons his argument isn't valid is because he wasn't at the game. One of his points is that the wind was at the Riders back, although anyone sitting in the stands knew full well the wind wasn't making any difference in the kicks all night.
The second reason it was a poor decision was the fact that they lost 3 yards moving it between the hash mark to set up for the field goal, which made the punt longer and with a more difficult angle to punt out of bounds.
There are arguments that a punt is the safer play, there are less elements involved in it like a holder who might bobble the snap, or less chances of it getting blocked. All that said I still think the field goal was the better option, and that's despite us giving up 2 missed returns for touchdowns on the year.
