What's the first thing out of Picard's mouth when Worf says 'collision course'?
Sorry, but WTF? Is he the Captain or not?
Actually the 1st thing out of his mouth was "Hail them", hoping they might be under power which the ENT-D was not. It didn't work & he had 30 seconds to find something that would. Entertaining a select few options wasn't really a terrible call, imho, one which put their fate in the inertia caused by random decompression, & the other by utilizing one of their tools to attempt to correct the problem. I can see why he'd initially go with the tractor beam. It seemed more reliable
It's stuff like that which allows you to watch decisions unfold, that is why I enjoy the command dynamic on TNG versus TOS
