In that case, they had Picard, who was supposed to know where the vulnerable spot was somehow, because he was once assimilated.

I know, but that's still really dumb. It still establishes that if people know where to aim (all they have to do is ask old johnny), they can all just shoot in the same place and 5 seconds later the whole cube blows up. All of a sudden the villain is reduced from nearly invulnerable force to a joke.
That weak point wasn't always there, it was a temporary weak point that had developed during the battle from all the other damage the Cube had taken. No other Borg ship would be destroyed via the "focus on one spot" tactic.
Then the movie did a bad job of pointing that out.

It just seemed like "Picard shows up, knows where to shoot, and in two seconds borg cube blows up"

If what you say is true, then they could have explained it in one simple line
"Thank you.. for the drinks."
