Me and your friend seem to have a lot in common then. I'm nervous personally about letting Cro start from the getgo, the Cincy game is what mainly rings in my head. On the other hand though, I really like what he did his rookie year, and would like to see him starting, and ready to get out there and start being the guy we drafted him to be. I do agree with you that Florence seems more natural in the nickel spot. I'd like Florence to start the first couple games, assuming Cro hasn't shown he's ready. If he's dominating training camp, preseason, etc., I say let him get out there and go, but I don't want to throw him in too soon...
To the OP, by the end of the season, I would bet he will be starting. He's been what he was drafted as, a potential guy. He showed flashes of being the guy we need, but also shown he can get owned....or at least what is expected of a rookie. I would say, as a whole, Chargers fans are pleased with his progression.
