Sisko could point it out to Beverly. "Yes, he's the captain, Doctor, but as Starfleet feared, he's acting on what happened to him. Would he ordinarily act like this or would he give up the Enterprise?" If her answer to the question is "give up the Enterprise," then he can logically point out that maybe Picard isn't fit for command. As for the question of them not knowing him, unless the command crew acts as they did in "Chain of Command, Parts I and II," they may listen to Sisko.
Well, Worf thought it was a good idea to destroy the ship and Crusher stood right there and watched Picard begin to meltdown and never raised the issue of command fitness.
But that's Worf, someone she's served with forever, even if he's been on DS9. And she knows he's been known to act rashly. Sisko is a more neutral party.
So she's going to trust somebody she doesn't know over somebody she does? That makes no sense and Worf does bring up Picard's experience with the Borg and he thinks its affecting his judgement. That line alone should've sent Crusher into evaluating command fitness.

But, once again, who is going to not follow Picard in a crisis situation? Especially one that is taking place in the 21st century...
