The news has spread like wildfire the past 48 hours: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss the next four to six weeks with a broken pinkie finger. With this major blow, it’s time to re-visit the Cowboys’ 2009 Super Bowl odds.

Romo has been one of the many reasons oddsmakers favor the Cowboys to make a deep postseason run this year and potentially represent in the NFC in the Super Bowl. But with him out and Brad Johnson in, oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have updated Dallas’s odds to win the 2009 Super Bowl at 6/1.

Without Romo, the Cowboys’ offense takes a huge hit. Johnson is a crafty veteran and will benefit from throwing to Terrell Ownes and Jason Witten (as well as having Marion Barber in the backfield), but his arm strength has always been a concern and opponents don’t have to respect the deep ball as much without Romo in the lineup.

Still, Dallas is a good team and it might be time to jump on their Super Bowl odds now because Romo will return. If Johnson can keep the team afloat over the next few weeks, Romo’s injury isn’t a long-term concern and could still lead the ‘Boys into the postseason. At 6/1 odds (and probably only going up), the time to buy on the Cowboys’ Super Bowl odds might never be better.

Odds to Win 2009 Super Bowl:

Dallas Cowboys 6/1

Odds to Win 2009 NFC Championship Game:

Dallas Cowboys 3/1
