A 7-Year-Old Cowboys Fan Tells Jerry Jones ‘We Suck’


If you’re fed up with the Cowboys recent losses, you aren’t alone. Recently, a 7-year-old boy sent a letter to Jerry Jones to give the team owner a piece of his mind. For many Cowboys fans, it’s wholly relatable.

Fans Aren’t Happy

With the Cowboys being 3-5, it’s no surprise that fans are unhappy with their performance this season. Those unhappy fans include a young fan from Mansfield, Texas named Rylan Wood. The second-grader has been rooting for the team his entire life, but right now, he’s had it up to here.

“My family is a really big Cowboys family,” Wood told WFAA-TV. “But we need to work on our skills.”

Deciding to Write a Letter
Wood, sadly, watched his favorite team struggling yet again on Monday night in their game against the Tennessee Titans. It was during that game that he made up his mind to take action should they lose.

“He told me, ‘If the Cowboys lose, I really want to write a letter,’” said his mother, Kayla Jimenez. “He told me that he wanted to write a letter to Jerry Jones.”

Putting His Thoughts on Paper
While Wood wasn’t allowed to stay up late enough to see the final score, he soon learned of the defeat. The Cowboys had lost, at home, with a final score of 24-18. Ouch. After school on Tuesday, Wood got to writing.

His mother, subsequently, posted the letter for all to see on her Facebook page. “I laughed and laughed before I posted it,” she said. “But he’s saying what everyone is thinking.”

A Message to Mr. Jones

“Dear Mr. Jones,” Wood began his letter. “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.”

The message continued, “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 [sic] hard. I hope ‘Coach Garrett’ is clapping if this letter gets to you. See what happens when Dez X is gone??”


The true burn, however, was in Wood’s closing. “The cheerleaders are better [than] the team this year,” he wrote. Though he softened it by saying, “I do not want to hurt your feelings.”

Wood signed off with a succinct “Thank you, Rylan.”
