Naruto wouldn't have been special, they would've had multiple Jinks. Now even Chiyo stated its crazy to attempt to fight an Uchiha one on one, but remember were talking ninja.
Kyuubs has been controlled by Madara, Obito, and that is all. Sasuke never 'controlled', or attempted to. He only 'invaded' that special realm between Jink, and Bijuu, and seemingly evicted Kyuubs from the realm. He wasn't seeking a battle, control, and Kyuubs commented on his power how much greater than a normal shinobi, to the point of putting him in Madara's neighborhood.
For real, no other Uchiha achieved these feats, Shisui was way too young, as were Itachi, and Sasuke. No other Uchiha have ever been named to achieve MS, or the ability to control the Kyuubs. Not in the manga anywhere, therefore they were about as effective against the Kyuubs that night as the Hyuuga. They could've prolly seen its chakra well before it killed them.
Lastly, look at what Oro stated, they weren't looked upon by everyone as 'comrades' and were seperated as if they had AIDS or some shit. Why would I the AIDS Bringer, run to anyones aid that basically used me as a servant on a chain, that needs to be controlled and monitored. It would've prolly been equal to aliens invading the Master big white house at 2:00 a.m..... 'Damn, hope Masters whip work against that shit, if I do go see what happened, it'll be after somebodies wiped out first to see whom I work for.'
Think it this way, how many other Uber Senju have we heard of besides, Harashirma, Tobirama, and Tsunade, and notice the extra long break between generations after the 2nd. Uchihas/Senju were simply clans that because of they're abilities were destined to die out, maybe like the Uzimaki's.
