You are overstating the troubles the Pats had in these games. Let's go through these games.
Shaun Hill - 27 for 46 for 285 yards, 1 TD, and 2 INTs. Not horrible, but not great either. He had a great start, but was shutdown in the second half.
Colt McCoy - 14 for 19 for 174 yards with 0 TDs and 0 INTs. It was Peyton Hillis that killed the Pats in that game (184 yards rushing with 2 TDs), not McCoy.
Dan Orlovsky - statistically he was great (30 for 37 for 353 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 INT), but most of those numbers came in garbage time when the Pats were up by 27 points in the fourth quarter (the score at the start of that quarter was 31-3). Before that, he had one good drive (ending in a field goal) and the Pats shut down the Colts offense otherwise.
Tim Tebow - Tebow and the Broncos offense played well in the first quarter and then the Pats totally shut them down. The Broncos gave the Pats fits on the ground in that first quarter, not passing.
Matt Moore - He was like Shaun Hill, great first half and shut down in the second half of the game. But again, it had a lot to do with Reggie Bush on the ground too (113 yards).
BTW, the Pats are 4-1 in the games you listed. The only game they lost was the Cleveland game where they did a good job vs. McCoy and were killed by Hillis. I guess that is relevant because the Titans have Chris Johnson, but McCoy doesn't actually apply to your premise of the Pats struggling against QBs they see for the first time.
