7-year-old Cowboys fan writes brutal letter to Jerry Jones: 'WE SUCK'
MANSFIELD, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys are 3-5, and it's safe to say fans aren't happy with how the season has turned out so far.
Ask Rylan Wood. He’s a second-grader from Mansfield, Texas who isn’t very happy with the team he’s rooted for all his life.
"My family is a really big Cowboys family," Wood told WFAA-TV. "But we need to work on our skills."
On Monday, as the seven-year-old and his mom were watching the Cowboys lose to the Titans during primetime, he vowed to do something drastic if Dallas didn’t pull off a win.
"He told me, 'If the Cowboys lose, I really want to write a letter,'" his mother, Kayla Jimenez, said.
Then, she found out just who Rylan wanted to write a letter to.
"He told me that he wanted to write a letter to Jerry Jones," Jimenez said.

Wood didn’t get to see the end of the game because it was a school night and he had to go to bed. When he learned that the Cowboys lost, he told his mom that he would write his letter after school.
"Dear Mr. Jones," the letter begins. "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.
"Thank you, Rylan"
Jimenez thought the letter was so funny that she figured she’d post it to Facebook before sending it off in the mail.
"I laughed and laughed before I posted it," Jimenez said. "But he’s saying what everyone is thinking."
