"Weak"? I'd suggest you watch the movie again. Only Data and Worf, both superhumanly strong and durable, last more than a couple seconds against a Borg drone. Anyone else is either swatted aside by their bionic-augmented strength or hit with the assimilator tubes.
Right now melee against the Borg matches canon EXACTLY. They don't adapt to it, they just overpower it.
