for row in rows - set values to different variables

My script geterates two lines in a temp shapefile.

I'm then using SearchCursor and Describe to get the lengths of these lines, like this:


rows = arcpy.SearchCursor(tempSHP)
len = 0
shapeName = arcpy.Describe(tempSHP).shapeFieldName

for row in rows:
     feat = row.getValue(shapeName)
     len = feat.length
     print len


What I really want is to set the length of each line to a different variable - I tried various things like below but haven't found the right way to approach this little problem (the error for the code below said "row does not support indexing"):

for row in rows:
     featX = row[0].getValue(shapeName)
     lenX = featX.length
     featY = row[1].getValue(shapeName)
     lenY = featY.length
