Keep in mind that there were something like three other ships in that battle alongside the Prometheus. It's not really established how damaged that Romulan ship was before the Prometheus got involved.

I think escorts can be very, very useful if used properly. It can't be just a "fly into the middle of the crowd" kind of deal, you have to time it properly. But a well-timed alpha strike from an escort can dismantle a cruiser very effectively. However, I do think that escorts need more attention and some new ships. Aside from the VA refits, Sci got the Nebula and Cruiser got the Excelsior but there's still nothing for the Escorts.
