Raking the lawn, there are these vines in the underbrush that are a few feet long when I pull them out. Are these weeds or grass and more importantly, will weed and feed remove them?

If they are a vine they are not grass. I would use weed killer to get rid of it. If it is in a grass bed get a small foam brush and paint the weedkiller on the plant itself to keep from killing the surrounding vegitation.

Are there blades of grass on it? That's how turf extends its reach.

Do you have St. Augustine? Those runners are how it grows.

There are blades of grass on it. I have yanked several out so lets see how much damage I did to the lawn. I didnt like the texture of the grass anyways.

Yep that sounds like St. Augustine grass. To me it is a lot easier to maintain than Bermuda but Bermuda looks better.
