DeMorning Links: Warm up the bandwagon


Strasburg, who? (John McDonnell - The Washington Post)
The Nationals might have been the D.C. sports story of August, but with Stephen Strasburg now shut down and a dismal performance against the visiting Marlins, they left a bit of an opening this weekend. And so in rush the Redskins, led by Robert Griffin III and an as-good-as-advertised performance against the not-terrible New Orleans Saints. Get this: The Skins offense has scored 40 points — and it’s still September.
