WINNIPEG - Winnipegís quarterback carousel this season really has been quite something.

For the first four weeks it was Buck Pierce, Justin Goltz and Max Hall. Then it was Goltz, with Hall and Pierce backing up. Then it was Hall, with Goltz and Pierce in reserve. Then it was Goltz again, this time with Hall and Jason Boltus ó in that order ó waiting in the wings.

Now, in Week 13, itís a brand new setup once again, which is odd considering there are only so many ways to arrange four quarterbacks. On Friday night against the Eskimos it will be Hall starting, but with Boltus moved up to the No. 2 spot and Goltz relegated to No. 3.

Itís like a soap opera: As the Quarterback Turns.

Boltus has been in Winnipeg for less than a month, but he has already moved past Goltz on the depth chart. Thatís not completely surprising when you consider he spent three seasons in Hamilton with Bombers offensive co-ordinator Marcel Bellefeuille.
