Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice fired back at his critics in the midst of his struggles in 2013 by saying "I haven't lost a step."

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who has struggled during the first half of the 2013 NFL season, has fired back at his critics. 

Rice has been on the receiving end of harsh comments from his detractors as he's in the middle of what has been the worst season of his six-year NFL career. To make matters worse, the Ravens are 29th in the league in rushing offense. 

He has produced just 259 yards on 97 carries for a 2.7 yards-per-carry average -- his lowest ever. He's never tallied lower than 4.0 yards a carry. 

Rice was not one to take the criticisms sitting down. 

"Everybody has these situations. A down year is not going to make or break me as a person. I've been through a lot worse that what I'm averaging in carries. I got broad shoulders. I'll take it. 

"If you watch the film, you'd understand that we've been playing very good fronts. We've got eight games left, and that's my focus now.

"I've been working on my health. My health is there. And now it's time to keep pushing for these next eight games, and win the ones we have at home." 

With this, the 26-year-old Rice shot down any speculations that a hip flexor strain he suffered in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns has produced any lingering effects. 

He also told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun on Nov. 6 that the Ravens will be able to eventually turn things around on the ground. 

"My level of confidence is where it was in Week 1. I still believe we'll get the run game going. We have the guys. We've just seen some pretty good fronts, and I've battled through stuff this year. The next eight games, I'm just trying to go out there and be the best Ray Rice I can be for the next half of the season." 

Rice has rushed for at least 1,143 yards in the last four seasons, being named to three Pro Bowl selections along the way. His Ravens, the defending Super Bowl champions, are currently 3-5 through Week 10 of the 2013 NFL season.
