Do yourself a favor and type "Randy Moss Capital Grille" in a Google search. Blogs, chats rooms and credible sources all have something to say about the situation.

Some chat boards claim he was at the Broad and Chestnut location in Philadelphia while ProFootballTalk.com says he might have been spotted in Cherry Hill,New Jersey.

I'm sure your sister's best firend's boyfriend is a busboy at the Capital Grille, and he saw Moss enjoying a nice cedar planked salmon with tomato fennel relish, but I'm not buying it.

We've read everything on the Internet from the world ending on May 21, 2011 to Mr. Rogers being a Marine sniper and a former Navy Seal, and yet we think some unknown face posting information on a blog has the inside scoop simply because we want it to be true?

Look, I wanted Moss here as badly as the next guy, and I even wrote about a couple weeks ago, but enough already.

It's time to come to the realization Moss does not belong in Philadelphia.

It was less than a month ago when Moss' agent Joel Segal told NFL.com:

"Randy has been working out, two-a-days, all spring and summer in West Virginia. He is determined, motivated and, quite frankly, has a huge chip on his shoulder.

Whatever team ends up getting Randy, they're going to know they're getting the old Randy Moss. He's not just coming in to be on the team, he's going to be Randy Moss—a difference maker."

It blows my mind that people look at the quote as evidence he will return to the NFL.

Are you serious? That's what you get from the quote? 

The only thing it proves is how big of a diva he really is. Because when Moss didn't get the money and situation he was seeking, he retired according to his agent. He acted like a little kid, took his ball and went home.

If Moss is already acting like a malcontent and he's not on a team can you imagine how he will act if he joined the Eagles and didn't fit into the offense the way he envisions it?

Moss made his agent, Segal, say one thing, and then he went out and did something completely different. It made Segal look like an idiot, and it makes Moss look like someone you can't trust.

The huge chip on his shoulder apparently has a price, which I guess is what the old Randy Moss was all about.
