In part, I think Riker did at a point act in a manner that was more huffy than professional. He was relatively used to having Picard's seal of approval.

However, it can also be argued that in the midst of an emergency it was rather short-sighted of Jellicoe to start turning the ship upside down to suit his style and add to the number of things that needed to be dealt with.

He was too cartoon a captain for the most part - deliberately set up to be the dramatic opposite of Picard.
