I mean their whole body of work since taking over at UVA.

I agree with you that the D is bad this year, but both sides of the ball have had problems (even special teams). To me, Anae has far more “head scratching” / what was he thinking moments as it relates to calling a game. Add to that injuries, and I think Howell has had to deal with more of them and switching parts than Anae. (Again, just considering their entire body of work over 5 years, not one particular season or game.)

The defense has been shockingly bad this year and I (like everyone else) expected them to be far better. But Howell passes the “eye test” for me better than Anae overall. Far from perfect but has earned the benefit of the doubt more than Anae has.
