"The final and most risky way to play this is to buy some short term (3 months or so) in the money puts on some of the big financials"

I would go for near the money puts. And the most risky but with the best possible percentage pay-off is a put that is significantly out of the money, counting on a BSC-like drop!

Disclosure: I own puts on IMB and XLF.
