FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? When the Jets take the field at a hostile Gillette Stadium this Sunday to face the Patriots, they will have a little bit of home blaring in their locker room, with rookie safety Josh Bush?s ?Jet Life Dreams? being the track of choice.

Bush wrote the rap during training camp, specifically for the talent show that all rookies have to participate in, a rite of passage if you will around NFL circles. Both composer and lyricist of the tune, Bush said he wrote the song about his own life and how he?s fought to get where he?s at right now but in it, he used football as a metaphor. The song is played during pregame warm-ups at MetLife Stadium but rookie linebacker Demario Davis told The Jets Blog that the team often plays it on the road in the locker room to get themselves ready for the game.

?I?ve been playing music for a while; I don?t even really know how or when I first fell in love with music,? Bush told The Jets Blog. ?I guess in high school, it started when someone bet me that I couldn?t learn how to play the guitar and I did. Then one day, I started to teach myself the piano. From there it has only grown.?

Bad news for the Jets today. Not only will their star cornerback Darrelle Revis not be cleared to play, starting outside linebacker Bryan Thomas and starting tight end won't make the trip to Pittsburgh as well. Let's address all three?separately.

CB Darrelle RevisImpact:?Revis is the straw that stirs the defense's drink. ?His ability to effectively lock down one side of the field allows Rex to deploy a safety into other uses - be it run support, pass rush, man coverage on another receiver or to make zone play that much easier. ?Because of his lingering concussion issues, he's not going to be ready to play this weekend and that's a huge blow to the Jets. ?Facing The Young Money Crew the Jets are going to be hard pressed to keep up with their receivers and a QB who can extend plays. ?Unfortunately, the rest of the cornerbacks?aren't fully healthy as Isaiah Trufant (now the 4th corner) is still recovering from an injury as well.

Remedy: There's no perfect remedy here. ?The Jets would be wise to take their chances with Cromartie on Wallace. ?Cromartie is fast and tall enough to keep with Wallace much of the time and that will leave Wilson on a mix of players, be it Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders and even some Cotchery. ?Ellis Lankster and Josh Bush better be ready to play a lot of snaps as a potential nickel/dime ?players for this team and be solid in coverage. ?The Jets defensive line also better have the game of their life, limiting Roethlisberger's time to throw with their base four and to drop as many bodies into coverage as possible.
