Should Nadella take the blame that Ballmer blew it on mobility? No way. And really he should only acknowledge it insofar as the company blew it. As the chief he does not have to acknowledge personal responsibility.
Nadella doesn't take the blame for Ballmer spending billions on mobile and effectively throwing it in the bin, because cloud.

Krueger has no cloud.

But that doesn't change a thing, you get paid the dollar to take the blame and they are well rewarded regardless of the outcome, give me the job and blame me for everything, I'd cope.

I agreed with you that it isn't his fault but that's how it works at that level, you also get paid to be the "face" and he's struggled in that regard and no one forced him into the position.
