Cleveland Browns first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens is off to a rough start. His team is 1-2 and there are already questions about whether or not he should retain playcalling duties.

Could Kitchens already be on the hot seat? Well, betting side Bovada has already posted odds on who will be the Browns' head coach when the team plays the New England Patriots in Week 8.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, time to slow things down a bit. Bovada has Kitchens as the overwhelming favorite to be on the sideline with -3000 odds.

Next up is defensive coordinator Steve Wilks (+800), who was the head coach in Arizona last year and offensive coordinator Todd Monken (+1000). Former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is listed as a +2500 longshot.

All in all, it is way too early to say Kitchens' job is in jeopardy. However, if Cleveland doesn't get things turned around quickly, the grumbling will continue.

The Browns' schedule lightens up considerably over the season's final two months. But before that can happen, Cleveland has to face Baltimore, San Francisco, Seattle and New England.

Not exactly a bunch of cupcakes.
