The way I see it, the ninja's were using themselves as raw meat to keep the Kyuubi occupied. They didn't stand a chance but they did act as bait keeping the kyuubi's attention at the very least, till yellow flash could arrive and hand down some pawnage. Its the same way when a wildebeast is being eaten by a crocodile the mass of other wildebeasts who wouldn't stand a chance, are given safe leeway to cross a stream whilst the beast is occupied.
