ATLANTA -- Howard Eskin has made no bones about it: He thinks the Patriots are cheaters.

It is a take the Philadelphia radio host reiterated when appearing on OMF from Radio Row Tuesday afternoon.

"They do cheat," he said. "We know that they cheat."

The problem for Eskin came when he was pressed by Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria about exactly how the Patriots have bent the rules.

Eskin first misidentified Spygate and then couldn't offer a definitive problem with Deflategate, only citing fact two equipment men for the Patriots moved on from their part-time jobs with the team. It got to the point in the interview that Eskin's explanations left the WEEI trio throwing their hands up in frustration.

"Stop! This is insane," explained Fauria.

And it wasn't only the Patriots' team Eskin put in his crosshairs. He also had some pointed words for how he viewed its quarterback, Tom Brady.

"I do appreciate him. But he is a cheater. He deflated the football," the radio host said, going to identify Joe Montana as the best quarterback of all-time. Eskin later added regarding Brady, "I want the vitamins he’s taking that he’s throwing the ball with more velocity now than he did at 39."
