It’s not a democracy. We don’t vote. We have discussions and everybody’s opinions are heard. At the end of the day, ultimately it’s my call, and we try to take the best player. I’m not saying that to say I’m some sort of almighty decision-maker, it’s just that’s my job and my responsibility.

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.
