    Qd7? it helps to protect the g- pawnafter attacking the center with f6.

    If white plays Qg4. It also helps with the advance of f5 after the exchange of bishop on Bxc3 , by keeping the white bishop trap bad bishop!. next after b6 black white bishop can control the a6 -f1 diagaonal. without pieces conflicting with each other. finally if c5  to break the center , or  c6 to slowly break center, the queen can move to c7 will be better than on b6 away from the center!
