A 7-year-old cowboy fan sent a very entertaining letter to team owner Jerry Jones. Well, he and Dallas coach Jason Garrett may not have laughed a lot, but the rest of us can laugh at the boy's scathing criticism.
"You made my mother very crazy because WE HAVE!" Writes young Rylan Wood of Mansfield, Texas. He added: "The cheerleaders are better than the team this year."
The content of the letter was made public by her mother, Kayla Jimenez, who posted it on Facebook earlier this week. She told WFAA that the idea of the letter had come to her as she and her son watched the Cowboys face the Titans in "Monday Night Football."
"He told me," If the Cowboys lose, I really want to write a letter, "Jimenez said with a laugh. "So, I thought," Okay. "" Then he said the letter would be directed to Jones.
Indeed, Dallas fell in Tennessee – after the second grader went to bed, it was a school night and so on – which gave the Cowboys a 3-5 record. "The first thing he asked me when he woke up was," Have we won? Jimenez said. "When I told him no, he said," Okay, I write this letter after school. "
"Dear Mr. Jones," began the letter respectfully before Rylan identified. He indicated that his family members were "Dallas Cowboys fans since the beginning of the team", that he had "a lot of cowboy gear" and that "he was a cowboy boy. he had met Dallas players such as halfback Ezekiel Elliott and former Jason Witten.
That's when Rylan dropped the "WE SUCK" bomb by telling Jones about her mother: "Every day of the match, she screams on television and turns off the game. We want to believe in boys, but it is difficult.
At that moment, it was Garrett's turn to take some heat. Rylan spoke of the coach's widely mocked penchant for clapping his team's hands as he remained on the bench despite futility on the court.
"I laughed and laughed before posting," Jimenez told WFAA. "But he says what everyone thinks."
Rylan was not the only one to let his frustrations with the Cowboys – and with Jones in particular – be known this week. None other than Troy Aikman, the quarterback of the team that won the Super Bowl three times and is now an analyst at Fox Sports, called for "a complete overhaul of the entire organization."
"Browse the list and this team, for a long time, is what it has been," Aikman said. "… You can not just replace the main coaches and say," Now it's going to be better. No, it has been shown that it was not better. And you have to explain how everything is done. "
And I sometimes heard Jerry say, "Well, look, we're going to do it differently. I will do it differently. But it's the same. Nothing changes, "added Aikman. "And for me, it's the biggest problem."
"They've broken my heart a bit," Rylan told the station. "They did a good job, but I just want them to win every time."
The young man also wanted to enter his letter with some extra jabs. Just before talking about cheerleaders, he pointed to the departure of long-time recipient Dez Bryant, known for his cross-leg celebrations and "X". "See what happens when Dez X is gone?" Writes Rylan.
Assuming Jones read the letter, it could not have put him in a good mood. But at least the beginning and the end were polite.
"I do not want to hurt your feelings," said the last line. "Thanks, Rylan."
