Keep it from seeding
I am pretty sure I understand that and my comments are consistent with that, I am well aware that crabgrass is an annual.

I suppose, but it doesn't appear to be the most mature crabgrass ever with stout roots where pulling it will put the area at high risk for germination of more crabgrass seeds.

I would pull the crabgrass and then top dress, reseed with a quality grass seed and water.

I am not sure who that is directed towards, I am well aware of how to edge properly.
