Rex Ryan Named Richie Incognito Captain for the Bills’ Game Against the Dolphins (Pic)
Rex Ryan doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who’d be good at playing mind games. After all, we’re talking about a guy who thought it would be a good idea to get a tattoo of his wife wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez New York Jets jersey. (He later had the colors changed from Jets green to Bills blue, by the way.) However, as it turns out, old Rex is actually better at mind games than we thought.
Prior to the Bills’ “game” against the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday, Rex Ryan named Richie Incognito captain, along with three other former Dolphins and a former Miami Hurricane.
Today’s captains: Dan Carpenter Marcus Thigpen Richie Incognito Seantrel Henderson Charles Clay

Dan Carpenter played for the Fins from 2008-12, Marcus Thigpen played for them from 2012-13, and Charles Clay played for them from 2011-14, while Seantrel Henderson is the former Hurricane.
Of course, if it were just these guys, you could chalk the move up to Rex Ryan giving former Miami guys a chance to get some respect in their former stomping grounds. But the addition of Incognito? The guy the Dolphins had to drop when we all found out he’s a huge racist douchebag? That’s just Rex trolling the Dolphins.
Did it have anything to do with the Bills beating the Dolphins 41-14? Probably not. But it clearly didn’t hurt them any.
