A 7-year-old Cowboys fan sent a fun letter to team owner Jerry Jones. Well, he and the Dallas Coach Jason Garrett may not have gotten much laughter, but the rest of us can chuckle at the boy's fierce criticism.
"You made my mother very angry because WE ARE CAUCCIATI!", Wrote the young Rylan Wood of Mansfield, Tex. He added: "Cheerleaders are better than the team this year".
The contents of the letter were made public by his mother, Kayla Jimenez, who published it on Facebook at the beginning of this week. He told WFAA that the idea of the letter came while she and her son were watching the Cowboys playing the Titans on "Monday Night Football".
"He told me," If the Cowboys lose, I really want to write a letter ", Jimenez said with a laugh. "So, I was like," Okay. & # 39; " He then clarified that the letter would be addressed to Jones.
Sure enough, Dallas fell in Tennessee – after the second grade went to bed, being a night of school and all – giving the Cowboys a record of 3-5. "The first thing he asked me when he woke up was:" We won? "," Jimenez said. "When I told him no, he said," It's okay, I'm writing this letter after school ".
"Dear Mr. Jones," the letter began, quite respectfully, before Rylan identified himself. He noted that his family members were "fans of the Dallas Cowboys since the team was started", which has "a lot of Cowboy gear" and met the Dallas players as the star that runs back Ezechiele Elliott and the 39; ex tight end Jason Witten.
It was then that Rylan dropped the "WE SUCK" bomb, telling his mother to Jones, "Every day you are screaming on TV and turning off the game, we want to believe in kids but it's hard."
At that point, it was Garrett's turn to take some heat. Rylan referred to the widely mocked affection of the coach for applauding his team while he was on the sidelines also through all kinds of futility on the field, writing, "I hope that coach Garrett is applauding if this letter arrives at you."
"I laughed and laughed before posting it," Jimenez told the WFAA. "But he's saying what everyone is thinking."
Rylan was not the only one to let his frustrations with the Cowboys – and Jones in particular – be known this week. None other than Troy Aikman, the three-time Super Bowl winner of the team who is now an analyst at Fox Sports, has called for "a complete overhaul of the entire organization".
"It goes through the list, and this team, for a long time, was what it was," said Aikman. "… You can not just replace the head coaches and say," Now it will be better. "No, it has been shown that it is not better, and you have to face how everything is done."
"And there were times when I heard Jerry say," Okay, look, we'll do it differently, I'll do it differently. "But it's all the same. Nothing changes ", added Aikman." And this, for me, is the biggest problem. "
"They broke my heart a little," Rylan told the station. "They did a good job, but I just want them to win every time".
The young man also wanted to get some more shots in his letter. Shortly before his tour on the cheerleaders, he pointed to the off-season departure of the long receiver Dez Bryant, known for his "X" celebrations. "See what happens when Dez X if he's gone?" wrote Rylan.
Assuming Jones had read the letter, he could not have put it in the best mood. But at least the beginning and the end were pleasantly polite.
"I do not want to hurt your feelings," said the last line. "Thanks, Rylan."
