On second thought it really is immaterial. There isn't an expert in the league that will condemn Garrett as OC or playcaller. No one is going to be that critical publicly even if they feel that way privately.
Beyond that, those who speak highly of Garrett - Aikman to name one - are simply dismissed as "fanboys."
The fact is that there is no compelling evidence to suggest that Garrett's work is either beyond criticism nor that it is subpar. For every positive statistic, it's dismissed by his critics by "well with Romo, Dez, Witten & more any OC could put up those numbers" or "that's because they play from behind so often." For the shortcomings its explained away by the lack of talent on the O-line or durability at RB.
It's really a debate that goes nowhere. Some like Garrett, others do not.
