and really, Taylor said exactly the same thing in India before he scored a century that could have squared the series. He took the game to the spinners. It could have looked stupid but it's not like there isn't logic behind the idea of putting pressure on the opposition's bowlers. Withou Kallis and Peterson having made those key breakthroughs there were times when Philander and even Steyn looked a bit flat.
Very few batsmen got out in this test playing overly aggressive shots so I don't think the team has any mixed messages about how they should be playing.
