A better line would help. A better player caller would help too. I think the hope is a better line would help mask Garrett's bad scheme and playcalls, much like Romo helps to mask the mistakes too, except when he gets leveled and makes mistakes knowing he will probably take a whole lot more pounding as the game progresses.
