    Is it fine, please?

    It seems I'm the one to blame for what happened.
    It seems I'll be blamed for what happened.

    Thanks.

    Re: Is it fine, please?

    They're not identical:
    It seems I'm the one to blame for what happened. = I am responsible
    It seems I'll be blamed for what happened. = People will hold me responsible (though I am probably not or not the only one responsible)
