As someone pointed out here, the Navy takes the handling of its ships quite seriously; the skipper is always going to be called to account in the event of a loss.
In the case of the submarine, obviously, the only other party was an inanimate piece of terrain that rose up from the sea floor. In the case of McVay, he was on a combat ship operating in a war zone; the loss of a ship to enemy fire could hardly be held against him.
