Carson Wentz led an offense that steamrolled opponents last season with perhaps less talent surrounding him than he has now.He's certain the Philadelphia Eagles will regain their production.The defending Super Bowl champions are averaging slightly more than a touchdown less than they scored in 2017 Customized Chicago Bears Jerseys , down to 20.9 points per game from 28.6.But the Eagles (5-6) are right in the mix in a mediocre NFC East despite the slide."Some of the plays that we just miss, it's usually just one little thing on each play," Wentz said Thursday. "If this just changes, this little detail of this play, that's a big play, that's a touchdown. Instead of degrading guys, we just say, 'hey, this can be the difference.' Guys can just focus on the little details and stay encouraged."The Eagles parted with four players on offense after winning their first championship since 1960. Tight end Trey Burton and running back LeGarrette Blount were allowed to sign elsewhere in free agency. Tight end Brent Celek was released and wide receiver Torrey Smith was traded.They were replaced by veteran wideout Mike Wallace www.authenticschicagobears.com , rookie tight end Dallas Goedert, veteran tight end Reggie Rodgers and undrafted rookie running back Josh Adams.Tight end Zach Ertz is having an exceptional season, but wideouts Alshon Jeffery 鈥?he missed the first three games 鈥?and Nelson Agholor haven't had similar success.Losing running back Jay Ajayi to a season-ending knee injury in Week 5 hurt the offense, but he wasn't even part of the team until a trade midway through last season. Wallace only played two games and Rodgers recently came off injured reserve.The Eagles added wideout Golden Tate last month, but he hasn't made much of an impact and the offense has regressed since he was inserted into the lineup."We know we've got guys that we want to get involved in the game, and the more they're involved, the better our chances are to win," offensive coordinator Mike Groh said."In the passing game, coverage dictates and sometimes rush dictates where the ball goes. Even though you have certain plays that are set up for a primary guy Chicago Bears T-Shirt , it ends up down the line and just things that are beyond your control."A major issue for the offense has been slow starts. The Eagles are scoreless in the first quarter in nine of 11 games. They have only 21 points in the opening quarter, fewest in the NFL. Fourteen of those 21 came in the only game they surpassed 30 points this season."We have to be better with that," Wentz said.Notes: RB Darren Sproles returned to practice Thursday in a limited role. He hasn't played since Week 1 because of a hamstring injury. He returned to the field earlier this month, but re-injured his leg in the first practice. "He's such a competitor and a leader of this football team, and he wants to be out there, really, really bad," Pederson said.Bears release offensive lineman Earl Watford The Chicago Bears have released offensive lineman Earl Watford, the team announced on Sunday.The move comes as a bit of a surprise Chicago Bears Hats , as Watford was expected to compete for a spot on the Bears’ 53-man roster. In fact, two of the writers at Windy City Gridiron predicted that he would make the active roster. He saw extensive playing time as a guard with the team’s second-string offense, starting in Saturday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs after the Bears decided to sit most of their starters. The six-year veteran signed a one-year deal with the Bears in April. At 28-years-old, he is still in the prime of his career. But Watford being released at this stage of the preseason could prevent him from having enough time to catch onto another 53-man roster for the 2018 season.Watford’s release could potentially open up a Bears roster spot for an offensive lineman on the fringe of making the team The likes of Eric Kush, Bradley Sowell, Jordan Morgan and Rashaad Coward are all expected to be in the running for roles with Chicago.Jacob Infante is a Chicago Bears and NFL Draft writer at SB Nation’s Windy City Gridiron.
