You can hate on him all you want for now, but their will be a day when his production improves....and he will be the same player as he's always been - Just the people around him improve enabling him to have a chance instead of fending off tacklers in the backfield so often.
That's all I'll say.
Ray Rice didn't go from an elite RB to a scrub in a span of 8 months. People around him have been struggling and he's getting hit in the back field a bunch this year, way way more than previous years. He hasn't been as "spry" as years past but he's nowhere near a scrub now.
Marshawn Lynch is producing with a terrible oline as well. And Ray Rice is a scrub this year.
