I don't recognize these as crabgrass, but, I could be wrong. Can you post a pic of the grass itself?

Showing more of the plant (the WHOLE thing) is always a good first step - sound familiar?

I think you have an Orchard Grass there - one of the Dactylis sp., maybe Dactylis glomerata, which is a pretty common pasture grass around here.
