A sub-optimal line in the Steinitz variation?

An opponent of mine   played me the following line

.[Event "?"]
[Site "?"]
[Date "2017.03.21"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Gacnik L"]
[Black "Nunnari M"]
[Result "*"]
[ECO "C01"]
[PlyCount "14"]
[SourceDate "2017.03.21"]

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. e5 Nfd7 5. f4 c5 6. Nf3 Nc6 7. Be3 a6  8. Be2 Without 8. Qd2

The book "Playing the French" ( AAgaard & Ntirlis)  do not say anything about it . I guess the logical answer is

8.., b5

but what is the best plan for Black if White  don't play Qd2 at all?

Tnx
