On Monday night, seven-year-old Rylan Wood was watching his beloved Cowboys at his home in Mansfield, Texas, which is just southwest of Dallas. As they've done multiple times this year, the Cowboys were losing early after the Titans scored a couple of second-quarter touchdowns. Wood wanted to do something about it.
"He told me if the Cowboys lose, I really want to write a letter," his mother, Kayla Jimenez, told WFAA TV. "So, I was like OK." She then heard who the letter was for: "He told me that he wanted to write a letter to [Cowboys owner] Jerry Jones."
Fortunately for Ryan, he missed another embarrassing Cowboys defeat, 28-14, because he had to go to bed to get up in time for school the next day. He got the bad news the next morning.
"The first thing he asked me when he woke up was, 'did we win?'" Jimenez said. "When I told him no, he said 'OK I’m writing this letter after school.'" He did just that and before his mom put it in the mail, she shared a version on Facebook, which shows Wood taking a nice shot at coach Jason Garrett before reprimanding the team for waiving wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Dear Mr. Jones,
My name is Rylan Wood. I am a 7-year-old 2nd grade student in Mansfield, Texas. My family has been Dallas Cowboys fans since the team was started. I have a lot of Cowboy gear and I have met ‘Zeke, Taco, Jason Witten and two other players who play on other teams. You have made my mom very mad because WE SUCK! Every game day she is yelling at the TV and turns off the game. We are wanting to believe in the boys but its hard. I hope “Coach Garrett” is clapping if this letter gets to you. See what happens when Dez X is gone?? The cheerleaders are better than the team this year. I do not want to hurt your feelings.
"I laughed and laughed before I posted it," Jimenez said. Wood told WFAA. "They’ve been doing a good job, but I just want them to win every time."
We're just glad Rylan made sure to include that last line, "I do not want to hurt your feelings," because Jerry can be sensitive.
