I no longer get this take at all.

As I mentioned earlier Kavis is picking his favorites like Joseph not because Joseph is loyal to the org but that he's loyal to Kavis Reed. A coach that is struggling with the dressingroom will ride with what got him there, go with his guys.
Doesn't really matter what their on field performance is like as long as they sing the right song and dance. Kyle Koch for instance is on this football team for no other reason than he says all the right things.

We've seen this act before here when a coach is on the outs desperately riding his donkeys.

You'll remember earlier in the year Kavis had to get Gizmo to talk to Burnett about returns because he wasn't communicating his message adequately. Or because Kavis threw one of his hardest working players under the bus. One of the few that even showed up on Sunday. But Burnett isn't in the good books because he's not immediately amenable to confusing direction.

Or that the entire club seems immune to whatever coaching goes on between games. To wit not knowing who is what unit, not knowing when to be on the field. not knowing assignments. An RB not knowing where to lineup. This team has been loaded with confusion all year which is pretty indicative that the players have tuned the coaching staff out.
