It was about trust. Picard knew Riker would not do anything to put the ship or its crew in danger..
Besides, Starfleet isn't as rigid in my book as the military, so are a bit more team orientated. Yes the buck stops with Picard, and he has made decisions that Riker disagreed with, but again, he trusts Picard....
Go back and watch the pilot and you will see the more military orientated crew as they do not really know each other, but a few years on you get used to your crew and how it performs etc..
That's how I view it anyways
