When a Bengals player says something like this, it is time to hang up the cleats.
Michael David Smith said:
Bengals defensive end Carl Lawson has 9.5 sacks in his two-year NFL career, of which 2.5 came in the third game of his career, against the Packers.

It's a money quote, he reels it back in. Also says Aaron can still come back and beat you, no matter how many sacks.

I basically got that Lawson believe Rodgers is easier to sack because 1) Rodgers has more confident in his abilities than other QBs and because of this 2) Rodgers is willing to hold onto the ball longer, thus 3) more time to pass rush equals easier to beat the blockers and get to the QB.
Can any of disagree with any of that?
Rodgers does have more confidence in his abilities (and he should).
Rodgers does extend the play longer than just about any other QB (I believe I read he was 4th in longest time with the ball in his hands or some odd stay like that, and normally those longer times are reserved for teams that are run heavy and use play action passes, which wasn't the Packers).
Longer the QB holds the ball, the better chances of the pass rush getting there.

If you count balls Rodgers threw away to avoid sacks + sacks taken last season Rodgers is far and away the worst.

Rodgers didn’t have a lot of choices last year. The young guys were not getting open, and the o-line was weak. Add to that the fact that the offensive plays were stale, with defensive players pretty much knowing what was coming, and you get sacks and throw always.
Hopefully the new offense will give him more opportunities to make plays
