They may be Dolphins, but right now they feel more like sharks. Smelling blood in the water, the Miami Dolphins are taking direct aim at a weakened New England Patriots team. The losses of key offensive players and the Aaron Hernandez saga have the team thinking that it might be their time in 2013. LB Dannell Ellerbe knows that he’s one of the weapons brought in to accomplish that task. “I was brought here to help knock them off,” Ellerbe said, via Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com. “That doesn’t mean we will, but we feel like we can. Like I said, we just have to prove it. You have to actually go do it.” “I think they are but you have to prove it, you can’t just talk about it,” Ellerbe said. “Losing a starter always hurts and losing a starter as good as he was will really hurt,” he said. “I don’t think you can say the Patriots are the same as before after what happened to Hernandez.”
