Jim Owczarski is leaving us :(
#1
Jim announced on twitter that he is leaving to go cover the Green Bay Packers. He is easily my favorite writer who covers the Bengals so this is a bit of a bummer to see. I am happy for Jim though and wish him the best of luck!

Just saw this on Twitter. Good luck to Jim. He was the only beat writer (that I know of) to actually engage fans on forums, Reddit, etc.

I love mock drafts!

4/27/18 - I was wrong. Jpoore was right. Maurice Hurst did not get drafted within the first two rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft. I will uphold my end of the bet and will not post another mock draft until 4/28/19.

I don't know what the average stay for a beat writer is, but this one didn't seem very long. Best of luck to Jim O. The Packer fans are going to love you, the same as we do.

Hate to see it, but congrats to Jim. Other local beat writers (*cough* John Fay and C. Trent Rosecrans *cough*) should take note of how Jim interacted with fans without any hint of condescension.

Grr, this actually makes me angry. DOUBLE GRR!!! :@:@:@:@:@

It was absolutely awesome having you around, Mr. Owczarski; you were nothing but classy and respectful and that response to my Poland question was awesome!

And I'm glad that you distinctly said that you love my type of questions Wink

I know this is a dream for you, since you are a Wisconsin guy, so I wish you nothing but the absolute best!

Wow surprised he is leaving now. Must be tough to catch up on whats going on far as knowing the roster battles and story lines with a new team. Jim did an awesome job interacting with the fans on this forum, the BBP and on all social media platforms. Jim did a good job keeping neutral and unbiased far as covering the Bengals. I'll miss his sense of humor the most on things such as sending free agent questions to Paul and dealing with the A.J McCarron enthusiasts.

Best of luck Jim. Sorry to see you go but I hope you enjoy your new job. I hope you'll still stop in here from time to time if you have any thoughts to share on the Bengals.

Can we send Paul instead? LoL.

Congratulations and Good Luck Jim.
