I see what you're saying but I don't agree with that line of thinking for two reasons:
1) Allen is past his prime. Pinball witnessed his skills diminish last year. There is no more upside to Allen. Not anymore. Maas should be near or at his prime now. Furthermore, he's post surgery (which explains some of last year) and should improve on that basis alone.
2) Maas is heading up an entire new system, with an entire new set of coaches and virtually a new set of players. As much as some hate me to say say this, "The team needs time to gel". it's only been four games and improvement has been noted. There are 14 games to go still. The other teams in the east only have 2 wins. Absolutley no need to get desperate in this early stage of the season.
The Argos have an established veteran team and have had the luxury of continuity for several seasons which makes it much easier for a coach to evaluate players. Taafe is pre-occupied with sorting out many more unknowns and variables. Hence the chill pill. (I've taken one. It seems to be working)
Again, while Pinball has been coaching his Argo team for several seasons, Charlie's had only four measely games.
