tweeting out their sale. you see that you need to be concerned about who you are doing business with, right? >> absolutely. well, let me first say that online shopping is a wonderful thing. that's a way to avoid crowd, use technologies, use your smart phone, tablets. but consumers need to be very, very careful and vigilant about the information they share. some of the major retailers have online destinations. some of the online sites like amazon, overstock, et cetera, are very good places for consumers to go to buy online and avoid some of the things that frustrate holiday shoppers. >> is that because they have good track record and they are known to be reputable? >> they are known to be reputable but consumers need to take control. do not click on an embedded tweet that may be on facebook because those could have malicious codes behind them that can eventually attract --
they can eventually lead to mallware being downloaded on your computer or other problems that customers can experience. >> if you are on twitter or facebook and you get a link, what to you suggest? don't click on that link, go to the site itself? >> i would not click on that link. i would take control of the destination itself and type the url into your browser? >> how do you know that your site is secured? they are very careful on bank sites. there is a little sign down below. same thing for consumer sites? >> a few things to look for. not all sites will be secure when you are shopping but when you start tone ter your personal information like your name, address, credit card, et cetera, look for urls that begin with https. the s stands for secure. a lot of browser have color coded and they have a lock that

let's get into this year and a half into the mike shanahan. >> from a cap perspective, they are in a great situation. they did a lot of things in the uncapped year to restructure the contract, with the salary cap so that they have that flexibility. now, as you move forward and you try to figure out, do we need to get younger, do we need to maybe terminate some contracts, they have that flexibility that they have not had in the past. let's talk about some of those older guys like santana moss still on the roster but still performing when he has been healthy. do you look for more change at, let's see, key positions like that from the shanahans or do you think -- mike seems to like veterans, right? >> right >> i don't know how young they're going to go. they have the money to spend. which direction do you need to go? >> you need to do a combination. they had 12 draft picks a few of which have been on the active roster and then you see them sign guys like brian bowen
and coffield. you see that combination. when they bring veteran players, they do it the smart way and trying to bring leonard hankerson. one of the veterans they have on this roster is rex gross man. being from chicago, i'm sure they have feelings about rex, too. for guys around here, it's a bad word when they talk about rex and beck. is this a guy that can be on the roster even in a backup capacity? >> i think so. he understands the problem. you have to bring in a young guy. >> even though mike does not like to do that. >> yes, even though he did it with jay cutler. >> you know, rex gross man can serve as a backup, whether it's rex grossman or john beck. >> people, don't panic but one of those two guys will be back. >> one guy that will be here is
brian karrick. everybody says, you have to have a quarterback. if they took a quarterback, they could not have had 91 out of purdue. he has been everything out of that position. >> no doubt. this is a quarterback driven lead. you know, ryan karrick has been an impactful defensive player since day 1 but you have to get more pieces. >> again, glass half full a year and a half into that. >> let's call a spade a spade. they are rebuilding in this town. i know that's a bad word here in this town. but, you know, the grass is half full. let the regime continue to build a new culture and that's
what a lot of players are doing. >> real quickly pause the last time we had you on, we talked about the nfl lockout situation. and what's going on in the nba, do you see some similarities here? >> the thing about lockouts, it's always about the money. from a player perspective, when you've given on the structure of the system, you can't give on the system and on the monetary piece. in the nfl, in exchange for giving more money on the owners, players got more favorable work conditions when it cops to practice and post- career health. in the nba, the players have given both monetarily and on the system. they have conceded 300 million- dollar on average monetarily. they can't give monetarily and get a more lee restrictive system. >> when you talk about money, nobody better than j. r.
halesell. in the next hour, we'll talk about the game yet andndamukong suh from yet. the key to this is rebuilding. >> he family admitted it. >> 15 years of rebuilding. it's time. >> he is impatient. >> we are all impatient. >> impatient? what are you talking about? impatient. >> you don't care. you are a raven fan. >> i love both. >> you play both sides. >> i do play both sides when it comes to football. let's talk to temperatures. 35 right now at reagan national. 28 in manassas. let's take a bigger look at your numbers. 38 in boss tonight cheg, 43 degrees. there is some chilly air, particularly to the mountains out west. just hang in there. we're going to have a beautiful day. sunshine will warm up quickly.

that's a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. it was an event that quite literally changed the world, the bombing of pearl harbor precipitated the war in world war ii. pearl harbor was not the only significant event. according to the author of the book, december of 1941. let's talk about. this -- let's talk about this. the book, if you take a look at it is a day-by-day account of what happened in december of 1941. >> we were an isolationist country. george washington said in his address, that combined with the mop row doctrine made america a
very isolationist country only during the spanish-american war and world war i did we put our toes in the water and get involved in affairs around the world. other that, that there was a gallup poll. something of the order of 70% of american people were against getting involved in the european theater which, of course, had been at war. >> do you think that we would have been pulled into the war at some . had not the event of december 1941 happened? >> we were not looking at the pacific at all, only after the attack at pearl harbor. the japanese attacked six military installations that day, not just pearl harbor but wake eye lane, midway, singapore, hong kong, philippines and other location, both american and british. i don't think we would have

world war ii whereas, after september 11th, as you know, we fell back into partisanship pretty quickly. >> we sure did? the book is called tease better 1941 and it is a pretty thick one, too. i don't know if you could see it but that's a good time in the holidays to start reading this as well. craig shirley, the author of december 1941, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> over to you, matt. or i'll take it here. there you are. >> sorry about that. many families used day after thanksgiving to put up christmas decorations and that includes the first family. find out what's happening at the white house today when we come back. stay with us. fox 5 morning news continues.
