Maybe, just maybe this point might not look as bad as the QPR performance come the end of the season.
If it's the one that gets Rs into the play-offs or better, the 450 brave souls who made the South Wales trek won't feel so bad.
But if you don't test a makeshift keeper for the best part of 70 minutes - and Rangers didn't after Swansea custodian Dorus de Vries was stretchered off following a nasty collision with Martin Rowlands - it's pretty clear why boss Iain Dowie needs new forwards.
But the worrying thing for a manager and team who've set their stall with a passing game is that the men in away red didn't string a bunch of passes together all night.
Dowie berated his troops for the same crime in the last away match at Birmingham - and sadly it was more of the same at Swansea.
He said: "They've had an outfield player playing in goal and we haven't tested him. For 70 minutes he's not done anything. But then we could hardly test him without the ball and Swansea made it difficult for us to get it back when we lost it."
