Welcome!

Its some sort of grass but without more plant, we won't be able to tell you more.

Our yard is infested with several types of grass, maybe a dozen. Horrible stuff that must be mowed.

Can you find any unbroken leaves and check if there is a W shape where the blade bends?

More images. I'm beginning to think it's quackgrass.

Interesting, I can now see the "w". It's more like 2 v's, one on either side of the centerline. So what is it?

Definitely not quackgrass. The reason I asked about the W is because I'm thinking it looks like brome, Bromus inermis. The W on the bend in the leaf would be a good clue. So far the other characteristics look right.

Here's an idea of the look of the W

That is definitely it! Thank you.
