Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs was a tough pill to swallow for the Washington Redskins players.

But after the game, many of their thoughts immediately turned to the Redskins fans and their support throughout the magical 2012 season — one in which Washington, once at 3-6, won seven-straight games to claim its first NFC East championship since 1999.

Many players took to Twitter to reflect on the season, the fans and the future of the team, including:

Tight end Niles Paul:

Linebacker/athlete/special teams ace Lorenzo Alexander:

Fan Crew Riding Nine Deep to New Orleans

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 8, 2012 – 2:44 pm

Sammy Suleiman just can’t wait to catch his flight to New Orleans.

A Washington Redskins fan since 1985, Suleiman said he finds himself anticipating tomorrow’s 2012 season opener between the Redskins and the New Orleans Saints more than any other opener in recent memory.

The reason? Suleiman thinks the Redskins are truly one of the up-and-coming teams in the NFL.

Suleiman is one of nine family and friends in a single group attending tomorrow’s game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

“We’re all going to be bleeding burgundy and gold,” Suleiman said as he awaited to board his flight Saturday at Dulles International Airport. “It’s going to be very obvious where the Redskins’ support is.”

Behind Enemy Lines: Indy’s Bob Kravitz

This week, the Redskins Blog is starting a new weekly segment we’re calling “Behind Enemy Lines,” where we talk with a reporter, columnist or blogger from the city of the team the Redskins are playing that week.

The idea is to get a feel of the opposing team and to get their perception of the Redskins.

We’re starting off on a very high note today as Indianapolis Star sports columnist Bob Kravitz was nice enough to give us a call and address everything from the Andrew Luck-vs.-Robert Griffin III hype for Saturday’s game, former Colts and current Redskins receiver Pierre Garçon, former Purdue star and current Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and where Kravitz sees the Redskins panning out in 2012 and beyond.

One of the best things about Kravitz — who I’ve been reading for years — is that he tells it like it is. His views aren’t always the popular ones, but they’re just that — his views. You can tell he’s a fan of sports; he’s not just a guy covering the game.

Here’s some snippets from today’s conversation with Kravitz. The complete audio interview is below:
