Ted's not lording it over anyone. He's saying, WHOEVER WE TAKE, IT'S ON ME.

I like that.

Yup. He's saying the buck stops with him, and that if there's any lack of talent on the Packers, he's to blame. Obviously there's more to it than just that, but the buck has to stop somewhere. It doesn't mean much, but at least he's saying it.

In reality it is Ted's job to be in charge. All football operation decisions end up with him. I can live with that.
