Carl Lawson: Rodgers is easier to sack than most QBs

Aaron Rodgers is coming off a 49-sack year where he was hindered by a bum leg, his lineup was trashed for stretches, and the offense as a whole was out of whack before and after canning Mike McCarthy.
In 2017, Rodgers was on speed for 50-plus sacks despite playing just seven games (22).
Cincinnati Bengals edge rusher Carl Lawson took Rodgers down 2.5 days in Week 3 of 2017, a six-sack day for the defense. The defensive end told NFL Network’s Good Morning Soccer on Monday that Rodgers is really simpler to sack than some other QBs despite his freedom because he is always looking for the big play.
“Frankly, I think it’s easier to sack Aaron Rodgers than most quarterbacks,” Lawson explained. “There, and he pats the chunk. At the same time, sacking him do not mean nothing if you don’t do it for four quarters. You know, he came back against us.
“So, I mean, he’s an easier quarterback for me to sack personally, since he sits there, and that he likely gets eight to ten yards in the pocket. He’s got a fantastic left tackle in (David Bakhtiari). He sits there he waits, becoming that read. When he gets sacked, he does not get flustered. I just saw him becoming frustrated possibly one time when I did bag himwhich was the third and a half sack they took off (negated by a penalty)…”

Rodgers gunning for the big play was one gripe of the Packers QB the last few seasons as the group didn’t live up to expectations. Taking sacks isn’t exactly a new thing for Rodgers, who has 412 sacks in 14 seasons. Counting only his 11 seasons as a starter, Rodgers was sacked 403 times (36.6 a year ), including two seasons of 50-plus sacks and two above the 45-sack mark. Packers fans are used to seeing QBs sacked through the years, together with Brett Favre holding the all time record of 525.
For years, the Packers were ready to exchange the sacks for the big plays. When Rodgers was divebombing defenses, the tradeoff worked excellent, and the dab plays overcame the negative ones as Lawson mentioned, the Bengals lost to Green Bay in 2017 despite six sacks. In a discombobulated crime, like we saw for long stretches last season, the sacks stung.
With the change from McCarthy to brand new trainer Matt LaFleur, Green Bay is hoping a more diverse offense will always scheme faster options for Rodgers. This plays out will be one of the most interesting subplots into the 2019 NFL effort.
If Rodgers is a lot easier to sack, which QBs are harder to shoot down?
“The roughest to sack? Those young quarterbacks that offensive coordinators like to shield,” Lawson explained. “Perhaps a (Mitchell) Trubisky, or somebody like this. The men that sit maybe like five (steps), get the quick reads. The men who are like — I’m not calling them not elite or nothing like that — but the men that kind of have more help in their crime compared to (guys like Rodgers).
“And Tom Brady. I haven’t sacked him or played , I have only watched him. I watched the film and like’Oh, he is getting out that like 1.9, 2 (seconds).'”
To recap: QBs that grip on the ball are easier to bag. Ones that get it out quick are harder to take down.
Sounds about correct.
