More evidence Jordy Nelson is a 'really nice guy'

CREATED Dec. 3, 2013

It's the little things in life that often reveal the character in someone, and Packers analyst Larry McCarren says that wide receiver Jordy Nelson showed off part of that character after their 40-10 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving.

"He was nice enough to answer a couple questions...I'm basically suicidal over the game.  At the end, he says 'Have a Happy Thanksgiving.'  And he meant it," said McCarren on "The Mike McCarthy Show," which airs on TODAY'S TMJ4 and NBC26 on Tuesday nights."

Nelson attempted to downplay it during the show.

"it's about the only thing we had left in the day.  Try to think positive for a little bit."

Nelson's pretty good at that category, considering the number of charitable efforts he's involved in.  One example: he recently took over Donald Driver's softball game, to be held this summer in Appleton.
