Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl tight end
“We wanted to win the Super Bowl. But we also knew making disciples of Jesus is our number one priority. Rob was there to see and hear that. From the pre-game huddles to baptisms in the cold tub and all the moments in between, this book tells you those stories.”
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker
“Our team faced tremendous odds last year and yet we overcame and went on to capture the Super Bowl title. The world knows the headline, but this book tells the inside story from someone — a fellow brother in Christ — who was with us the whole time. Don't miss it.”
head coach of Super Bowl XLI champion Indianapolis Colts
“If you’re a football fan you likely know the story of the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles on the field. Winning the Super Bowl was a tremendous accomplishment but it is only half the story. Birds of Pray will give you a look at what really made the Eagles special—the tremendous spiritual bond they developed through Jesus Christ.”
Six-time Pro Bowl kicker
“As a member of the Eagles for some time, I was drawn to this team for their faith in the Lord and the support for one another. Rob has covered the Eagles for eighteen years. He was there nearly my entire career in Philadelphia. He knows the team, he understands their faith journey, and I know he knows the Lord. Birds of Pray is a unique look at what made the Eagles Super Bowl champs.”

former NFL quarterback
"I cannot wait to get my hands on Birds of Pray. I can say that this team was special and a little different in its approach; they made it very clear Jesus was going to be the beginning, middle, and end to every single thing they did. I'm excited to read how this Eagles team led by its quarterback with his own story of tribulation kept pointing to Jesus, no matter what."
