Once Riker was out of the way, the crew stepped up and did what they were told and worked as professionals. They may not have liked it, but they keep it to themselves or in private conversations, on the clock they focused on the job.

Makes me wonder if Riker was more the problem than Jellico. More or less keeping the crew pissed off at the Captain by putting his personal opinion into the mix and being to friendly with the crew.
I've been arguing about this episode for twenty years now and I've yet to see anyone put forward a good reason for Riker acting the way he did.
That would seem simple: Jealous, mad that he got passed over for Jellico. He viewed Enterprise as "his ship" and figured that Jellico had not right to be in charge just because Starfleet put him there.
