At least, that's how the requirements of drama would go. It would be too big a plot complication, not to mention too much of a tech contradiction, if the Borg could somehow block a swinging fist.
Well the requirements of drama will make the Borg as tough or vulnerable as they need to be to serve the story that week, which is why they appear weaker on Voyager, as the little Fed ship has to get away every week.
Ain't that the sad truth.

First Contact was about the time I started to call bullshit on the Borg's often cited ability to "adapt." If the sum total of your adaptive abilities consists of turning a dial on the personal shield frequency settings, that's pretty poor.
All these arguments have happened before, and all these arguments will happen again.
