The Borg once sent a fleet to assimilate a world with a population of only 100,000. Were they more of a threat to the Borg than the Federation?
Judging from them sending a fleet, yes.

Anyway, the Federation wouldn't pose much of a threat to the Borg if the virus could be easily contained by the Collective, would it? And once again, PICARD WAS SURE THE VIRUS WOULD WORK!
Bad writing.

If you thought you had a sure way to end the Borg, it would be ethically abhorrent for you not to use it. Let's face it, PICARD WAS WRONG, there should have been a court-martial.
That no one else thought "You know, this might not work" then the episode would have been loads better. As it is, it's just a mediocrely-written episode where major plot questions aren't answered.
