How complex is the Packers' offense?

Recently, I was over at Big Blue View, reading a fanpost about an anonymous player from one of their 2010 opponents saying that Eli Manning is still on the rise and blaming Kevin Gilbride for Manning's high turnover numbers last year.

In the comments underneath, one Giants fan (GhostDini) said,

There are so many pre-snap reads in our offense. I’d love to have the Packers offense. It’s so basic.
I responded that our offense is not so basic, and threw out the first thing that came into my head, which wss that each of our receivers can line up at any of the receiver positions on any given play, and properly execute the particular responsibilities (route running, timing with Rodgers, etc.) of the position they line up in.

Then, one guy (tommy d.) essentially argued that that only proves that the Packers' offense is simple; so simple that the receivers can do that without being confused by it all, but I counter-argued that the fact that our receivers do that makes our offense exponentially more complex.

So then, tommy d. asked if that is the common belief, that Philbin/McCarthy’s offense is complicated, and I said I wasn't really sure what the common belief is, and would write a fanpost over here to generate a consensus.

So, please, vote in the poll, give us your thoughts (including anything else that you think may make our offense "so basic" or not so basic, and help generate that consensus opinion for tommy d.
