The QB Plan

I’m heavily in magazine mode right now, so I’ll be throwing out tidbits from this year’s publication for the blog this week. Today’s installment is from the “Draft Plan” article I finished over the weekend. This is not the massive DP that we’ll produce later in the summer, but it’s a nice position-by-position overview of my plan of action.
