Well, as bassackwards this all seems, there's also the possibility that Garrett agrees, we get a new OC and playcaller who is better at the the job than Garrett, and the offense improves.

Didn't think of that but you're right, Al did that to at least one coach before.
Next stop, watch for the PC emphasizing firing Garrett "with cause".
But if I had to bet, I would say that the best chance is all this is overblown. I bet Jerry doesn't really want Garrett to quit. I bet he's just unhappy with the offense (as he should be) and wants someone else to run things.
Jason Garrett offense rank minus Tony Sparano: 18, 14, 7, 15, 15
