Indeed, Ruddy made a string of fine saves for the Canaries at Upton Park, with both the 28-year-old and West Ham goalkeeper Adrian making five stops each during the four-goal contest.
And yet the Norwich shot stopper was at fault for a late equaliser from the Hammers, with Alex Neil's men once again coming undone from a set-piece.
Ruddy flailed at the incoming delivery and Cheikhou Kouyate swooped in to tuck the ball home in the dying embers, with the home side snatching a point despite trailing Norwich in the closing stages.
Many naturally took to Twitter to air their frustrations at Ruddy. But just as many seemed to be praising the 'keeper for the saves he had made in the minutes leading up to West Ham's equaliser, while plenty even chose the 28-year-old as their man of the match.
As such, opinion among the Norwich faithful was hugely divided on social media after the 2-2 draw. Here's a selection of the reaction to Ruddy's performance...
Fair result disappointing to lose two points so late esp, but ruddy motm kept us in it with some great saves behind a porous defence #ncfc— ZLF (@Zipperslf) September 26, 2015
Ruddy was my MOTM there, right up until the goal. Never should have conceded that free kick #ncfc— David Mason (@davidmason1982) September 26, 2015
Ruddy deserves MOTM, no matter what the result is #ncfc— kieran butt (@Ginger_Canary) September 26, 2015
One thing to say. That's why Ruddy doesn't make England squad. Makes class saves, but too many stupid mistakes #ncfc— _DøRäÑ_ (@dorandoor) September 26, 2015
What the hell are you doing for that goal Ruddy?! shoulda won. #NCFC— Jamie Plummer (@Jampa9) September 26, 2015
Just seem West Ham 2nd goal...Ruddy But saves us more than not! #ncfc— Jamie Burgum (@jamieburgum) September 26, 2015
Doesn't really need saying but before the knives come out for Ruddy he produced two big saves and helped us win on so many occasions #NCFC— Sam Langan (@samuellangan) September 26, 2015
So gutting for #ncfc. Really think we need to look at a GK to challenge Ruddy— Jipin (@Jipin) September 26, 2015
