Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Tim Burke doesn’t know who his Banjo Bowl starting quarterback will be, but it doesn’t sound like Justin Goltz played his way out of the conversation.

“We have to sit down and talk about how long can we afford to develop somebody or do we have to play somebody who we think can get us a win right away,” Burke said. “Justin might be the guy in both cases. So we’ll sit down and talk about it and see where we go from there. But he did some good things (Sunday), there’s no doubt.”

Goltz started his third game of the season in Sunday's loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, with Max Hall and Jason Boltus serving as the backups. Both those players could be in the mix to start as well.

O-LINE SHUFFLE SUCCESS

The hamstring injury to Bombers right tackle Andre Douglas early in the first quarter of Sunday’s Labour Day Classic meant Paul Swiston had to move from right guard to tackle, and sixth man Chris Kowalczuk took over for Swiston.
