If only we could all put our thoughts down on paper and force them into the offices of our favorite yet infuriating teams.
Well, one kid got as close as you can. Little Rylan Wood, a devout 7-year-old Cowboys fan, grew so fed up with his squad that he wrote a letter to Jerry Jones expressing his frustrations with the franchise.
After watching most of the Dallas game against Tennessee, (he had an 8:30 p.m. bedtime) Wood decided that a poor 3-5 start was enough to warrant a strongly worded statement to his favorite team.
And now he’s getting the recognition he deserves.

“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.
Thank you, Rylan”
It's truly remarkable that Jason Garrett and Scott Linehan still have jobs with the Dallas Cowboys. For Cowboys fans hoping this franchise can turn the corner from all of this mediocrity, that should be incredibly concerning.

But you see, Mr. Jones likes to run things his way.
Maybe your letter will change his mind.
